FEW Single Malt Whisky

FEW Single Malt Whisky review: A rather unusual single malt example, does what it says on the tin. It’s like Scotch single malt but only superficially, so I guess this really is a US style single malt whisk(e)y – I’m still unsure whether or not to include the ‘e’! 72/100

FEW Bourbon

FEW-Bourbon

FEW Bourbon Spirit review: An unusually spicy bourbon/spirit drink, lots of new make spirit influence and a good dose of new american/white oak wood – that’s about where any similarity to (my experience of) bourbon ends. 70/100

Smooth Ambler Contradiction

Smooth Ambler Contradiction whiskey review: An interesting concept and combination. I guess Bourbon and blending (scotch whisky style) come together here and create something greater than the sum of its parts, as all great blends should. There is a lightness and sweetness from the home spirit and some great aged flavours derived from the sourced material. 85/100
