TBWC Blended Grain 50yo Batch 1 label

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


Full gold (9/20)


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


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


Long, drying and sweet, polished hard toffee, oak juice


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

Don’t take my word for it:
