    Launched a few days ago, Whisky Works [WW] is the brainchild of Greg Glass [SW]. WW is a boutique blending & bottling house, run as an independent arm of Whyte & Mackay. Making use of W&M’s vast stocks, WW will release two small-batch whiskies every 6 months - one modern and one classic presentation - 'pioneering new practices and investigating new taste experiences, whilst respecting the traditions and history of Scotch’ [Whiskylive booklet].

    Utilising Whyte & Mackay’s vast Linkwood stocks, for their inaugural 'pioneering’ release, Whisky Works took a < 9yo and aged it for 7 months in a unique one-of-a-kind cask made from two 200yo Scottish oaks.

    C: Pretty clean and youthful, lemonade-y, beer & wine-like distillate on the nose, so no surprises there from youthful Linkwood distillate. It’s towards the finish that some more interesting & quirky differences [compared to, say a straight bourbon cask], emerge. What I would have liked to try alongside, was the whisky pre-Scottish-oak matured.

    Trying this sample from Dave Cox, Whisky Works are Whyte and Mackay's new independent bottling arm and I don't think I've tried any of their releases before.

    Nose: sawdust, chipboard, white pepper, macadamia nuts, pear drops, spearmint and oak.

    Palate: candy cigarettes and almond dragees- quite sweet.

    Finish: white chocolate, lemon posset and mashed banana.

    It's a nice enough whisky, quite inoffensive, reminds me of Fettercairn and Tullibardine. However, I keep on thinking 'light whisky' and perhaps it's been designed for use in highballs.
