  1. grinface scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    If only the nose could be saved to the taste and the finish. Then this would be in the stars for me. Yes if. Although I have to admit, that the rest is not to be poured away. But the expectation that arose with me during the first nosing was very high.
    A plus, regardless of taste, is the transparency of the malts used. In my opinion, it should always be like this or even better. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/08/26/chapter-7-outturn-tasting/

    decent, a little unusual, kinda old school. two casks of blended malt vatted. it seems like a highland malt to me, but supposedly not. 6/10
    • Nose
      a little ben nevis-y, apricots, quite creamy, plasticine, concentrated orange juice, mixed citrus peels and a little nougat
    • Taste
      light fruit, apricot. seems a little smoky a first, coal smoke? mineral, fresh linens, bio washing powder but not overpowering floral. medium finish, a little bloomed milk chocolate, sweetness dropping rapidly, flattish

    This won't be for everyone.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity, pears and apricots. A wiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      60 60
      Rubber, turns to apricot jam. Sour and bitter. Soapy and waxy.
    • Finish
      74 74
      Long! Pears and vanilla. Smokey. Caramel at the end.

    The bottler wrote:

    "Anecdotes are our short whisky anthology stories. They are one-off and unique, from rare finds we come across through our whisky journey. When a fabulous batch of 4 casks of a very intriguing blended malt landed in our warehouse, we chose 2 casks for vatting our first Anecdote.

    This blended malt contains 17% Laphroaig, 20% HIghland Park and the rest of 63% of the malts come from Speyside's famous distilleries. It's been a good long marriage of 24 years in bourbon barrels that provides fruitiness, a touch of maritime notes and subtle peat in one perfect dram.

    Nose: A delicate fruit salad with notes of dried apricots, custard and a touch of sweet smoke.

    Palate: Croissants, slightly salted fudge, apricot jam, oranges, plums and fried sugar.

    Finish: Tinned pears, cornflakes and slightly smoky sweetness."
