An accomplished Auchroisk from a refill bourbon cask. Vanilla and cereals lead with touch of fruit and plenty of white chocolate, delicious! 84/100
A beginner’s guide to whisky styles
Oddly salted but good, butterscotch and fruit flavours, plenty of tropicality and a really good body/structure or malty backbone to this one. 86/100
Fruity, solventy and woody. A clever mix which stays entertaining but becomes a touch spicy and vaporous towards the end. 84/100
Quite neutral despite its obvious fruity nature the sweetness has been tempered by plenty of wood talking here and saying good things. I really enjoyed this one. 85/100
Superb, creamy textured and vibrantly fruity this has something of a curd or yoghurty nature and the youth comes through as banana milkshake (estery and creamy). A great insight into Drouin’s base spirit nature. 84/100
A statement on the cessation of the monthly Whisky Blog Rankings.
Long, sweet and smoky and medicinal and meaty.
Overall Another superb blended malt from J.G. Thomson redolent of classic Islay notes, smoke, phenols, meaty, coastal and sherried to boot. 85/100
A superb festive expression, full of the flavours of Christmas or in other words a bit of a well-balanced sherry bomb. 85/100
A sweet blended malt with plenty of fruit and also quite defined oak cask influence. 83/100
