Allt-á-Bhainne 21 Years Old Cadenhead Small Batch

What I say:

Another Cadenhead Small Batch release, this was an offering from the Allt-á-Bhainne distillery normally used for blending so rarely found as a single malt. Bottled at 54.4% ABV, this commands around £55 a bottle


Refractive gold


Cake mix, fruit cake dough, sweet, cherry lips sweets (cherries), cereal malt and oranges


Warming and fruity, maraschino cherries, chocolate malt, slight cinnamon/ginger spiciness, Kirsch (cherry liqueur)


Long and slightly drying, more cherries, malt chcocolate, old oak wood with that slightly herbal quality


Very enjoyable, went down well with the whole audience, that Kirsch and dark chocolate with sweet cereals was just perfect!
