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

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

Don’t take my word for it:
