What they say

Blended grain scotch whisky, distilled at 2 or more grain distilleries in Scotland over 50 years ago!

What I say

Sampled as part of the #TBWCAdvent Twitter tasting just before Christmas

A blended grain whisky in which all components have been matured for a minimum of 50 years.

Batch 2 bottled at 46.9% due for release early 2018

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Full gold (9/20)
  • Nose: Candy corn, polished beech wood, sweet honey, vanilla, toasted wholegrain bread, hazelnut puree – beautiful, with time fresh coconut and dessicated sweetened coconut, candyfloss, coconut marshmallows
  • Taste: Sweet, medium-bodied, coconut milk, coconut marshmallows or coconut mushrooms, some toasty oak, beeswax, hazelnut puree, honey, butterscotch, vanilla, tropical fruits; banana, pineapple, kiwi, orange oil, green oak wood and a touch of star anise
  • Finish: Long, drying and sweet, polished hard toffee, oak juice

Overall

From memory this is only the second blended grain whisky we have sampled (the first being Compass Box’s Hedonism) and what a particularly great example it is. At a young 50 years old! This displayed everything that is wonderful about old grain whisky, the sweetness from the Maize & possibly other cereals and what tastes like ex-bourbon American oak maturation have generated a coconut and tropical fruit bomb (or monster?)

Score 90/100
