About me? I am a Whisky Educator, Travel-Tourist and Blogger. I blog tasting notes about (mostly Scotch) beer and whisky at The Whiskyphiles. I keep progress of my travels via the Alfred Barnard Society. Based in Livingston, Scotland I do most of my dramming at the University of Edinburgh Water of Life Society and Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

The One Port Cask Finish (46.6%, OB, 2019)

The-One-Port-Cask-Finish

The One Port Cask Finish whisky review: Sweet and smoky but with a rather odd rubbery and metallic edge to it, reminds me of some of the more unusual Tobermory offerings from e.g. SMWS and although not displeasing it isn’t really ticking the right boxes for me. I like my port-finishes to ooze jammy sweetness, this is much more reserved than that in an attempt to preserve the blend profile – I wish it had gone a little further. 80/100
