Already 5 down, 3 to go with this being the sixth. Another bottling for The Whisky Exchange’s 10th anniversary since opening their webshop. So far it has been a very good ride with some really really nice whiskies. The Linkwood, Longmorn and Clynelish being absolute top drams!
It has been some time since I tasted this dram, so the tasting notes are not from the top of my head… I hope they still make sense to me 😉
Quite a fierce dram, with a bitter spiciness. I got some old wood, if tasted blind I would have gone for the white oak variety. I would have gone wrong there… I also thought to get some fenugreek.
The taste is better, with lots of tropical fruit. There is a crisp edge to it which I really enjoy. Peach, mango but not too sweet. Here I’d go for sherry wood.
The first feeling of the finish is a rather cloying sweetness, rather unexpected. Its a bit of medium length and is very fruity again, with banana in the background.
A very nice, but slightly confusing dram. Some unexpected flavours which I like quite a bit, but there might have been a bit more consistency.
