#LindoresAbbey Tasting

What I say

Thanks to Lindores Abbey for the sample

Tasted during the #LindoresAbbey Tweet Tasting hosted by Steve @TheWhiskyWire on 15th October 2018

My tasting notes

  • Appearance: Champagne gold (3/20),
  • Nose: Dried fruits and new make returns, five spice in plum sauce, cinnamon, lemon citrus, settles into toffee, butterscotch,
  • Taste: Raisins, spiced, fruited and cinnamon scones, toffee, butterscotch, reduced, gristy barley malt, citrus lemon and clementine are added to a smoother mix, cinnamon cookie dough.
  • Finish: Long, drying, spiced honey

Overall

A little too feisty at 60% ABV, but packed full of dried fruit, spice and toffee, well-reduced with water it reveals some cask and some new make spirit characters and suggest that things are maturing quite nicely at Lindores Abbey distillery – a taste of things to come.

Score 82/100

Don’t take my word for it:
