Kininvie 3 Years Old Blend KVSB003 (48.2%, OB, 2019)

Kininvie KVSB003 blended scotch whisky review: Better than the single malt but not as good as the single grain.. There was still far too much of the weirdly fake/plastic lemon citrus flavour and way too much spice in the spirit which I suspect derives more from the single malt than the single grain component. I likely won’t be drinking much more of this one straight either. 75/100

The Lost Distilleries Blend Batch 11 (52.3%, The Blended Whisky Company, 2018)

The Lost Distilleries Blend Batch 11 whisky review: A lovely blend that smacks of aged stock and I wouldn’t have been surprised if this was blended (or even single) malt. Quite a complex dram but that is unsurprising considering choice of components has been arrived at by availability and status (i.e. closed distillery). Perhaps a little zesty and spirity in places but here this adds character whereas other blends would smooth this out and diminish the tasting experience (in my opinion). 88/100

Grant’s Triple Wood Smoky (40%, OB, 2018)

Grant’s Triple Wood Smoky Blended Scotch whisky review: A delightful little blend that opens on the nose with a definite peat and smoke. I’m sure this will frighten a few people off but the palate in contrast is just full of fruit and dark sugars, the smoke doesn’t really appear until much later. I’m definitely going to use this one in blind tastings as it really plays with the perceptions. Really rather fun! 80/100
