The Whiskyphiles tasting notes
- Annandale Man O’ Words 2015 Bourbon Cask 528 (2020) - Annandale Man O' Words 2015 Bourbon Cask 528 Whisky Review: Really quite fresh compared to the new make spirit, predominantly fruit driven here with lemons and apples and also lots of vanillin and woody oak spices from the bourbon cask. Traces of barley malt persist in the finish. 84/100
- Rascally Liquor New Make Malt Spirit (2020) - Rascally Liquor New Make Malt Spirit review: To me a very 'traditional' new make spirit really full of cereal barley flavours, no hint of yeast/fruit or common distillation off notes (lactic/metallic/chemical) - really superb base.
