[Same cask, but this sample was taken from the cask in 2018]
N: A peaty one. It’s Frazzle-y, meaty [many meats], with Sunbites wheat snacks (from Walkers I think & not recommended), smoked dry pickled onions, leather hide, cows sheds,... and “a medieval tavern”, says DR - and who can disagree? The farminess grows as the peatiness fades, a touch. It’s so meaty and soft, very like that SMWS Glen Scotia from this month’s outturn [blog].
T: Firm yet easy arrival immediately developing a sweet chewy mouthfeel. There are subsequent notes of soft & smokey [back] bacon, mild sweet herbal lemon and barley/doughy grasses. More sugars and oak are produced with water & swilling.
F: A short finish on smoked bacon bits and dry, maple-sweet meat [lamb & processed turkey.
C: Blind, no clue. Revealed, yet another Chardonnay-affected whisky in the same week [2007 Inchmurrin blog], that I like! It’s a good sign because we are only going to see more & more wine casks.Scores a B
