    The nose in one word: disgusting. Each sip I was confrontated with it. The chemical smell from a new outlet matrass. Waist of money

    Light color, like a full-bodied white wine.
    Good whiskey, reminiscent of Ireland only for the lightness of the triple distillation, otherwise it would seem a Speysider. The most incredible thing is that it is a blended, before I discovered it I was convinced it was a single malt
    • Nose
      Sweet aroma, initially very fruity, raisins, baked apple, then begins to feel the cereal (bread), after a while even a little vanilla, zero alcohol.
    • Taste
      On the palate the body is light, the taste definitely consistent with the nose, sweet at the right point, fruit, raisins, malt, a light spicy note
    • Finish
      Pleasant and delicate finish, quite long, with a final note of bread

    Review taken from my blog: https://moredramslessdram.com/2020/06/04/hinch-tweet-tasting/
    Colour: Deep copper
    Comments: While the high percentage of grain provides mostly notes of solvent and vanilla as expected, the older malt, while in the minority by far, does not throw the towel and succeeds to let orchard fruits and spices shine too. The sherry finish completes this with cinnamon, figs and chocolate (though mostly on the nose), for a very good dram at a fair price, especially on offer.
    • Nose

      Strong sherry notes at first with dried fruits (figs, sultanas), a good pour of nail varnish remover and vanilla. Wood shavings, ginger and walnuts. Quite obviously completely different from the 5yo on the nose, it felt way more mature and the sherry finish strengthens that feeling.
    • Taste
      84 84
      The arrival here is sweet with a slight touch of bitterness, then a pinch of pepper. Citrus and brown sugar notes appear through icing sugar, while ginger, nutmeg and sandalwood bring a delicate touch of spices. The sherry finish is less present than the nose let appear, though you can find a pinch of cinnamon, some figs and dark chocolate. The high percentage of grain take the upper hand on the palate but it is still balanced enough.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Warm and a bit spicy, the finish leaves you mostly with wood, a few orchard fruits and a bit of ginger.
