Whisky Reviews for 1770 Glasgow Single Malt - Peated

- Not bad, but too many VO overtones to mask the young whisky. Strength could have been higher too.
The packaging is the most horrible cheat in the industry. The box is extra big with a special inlay to hide the fact it is only a 500ml bottle inside - it looks even bigger than any 700ml standard too. I am sure a lot of people will feel cheated at some point. Why start a relationship like this?
Tasted at a New Scottish Distilleries Tasting... (btw: the winner was a 21 month old Lindores Abbey cask sample that even pulverized a Kilchoman 100% Islay).
- OK, it is similar to the unpeated, only "peated". The Virgin Oak screams, the sherry barrel is subtle and there is still a clear peat note on it. All in all not uncomfortable, but still visibly young and just needs a little more.
has the young notes similar to the unpeated, this nice fruitiness, but also a slight solvent note, which I add to a Virgin Oak, plus a clear but not too dominant grassy peat note.
soft, almost thin, tart notes, fruitiness, oak, peat
sweet, peaty, tingling, sliding over time into the tart to make room for a sweet (from the sherry barrel?). Amazingly cute at the end before the peat flag fades away.
