    Last year’s Christmas Malt wasn’t exactly a hit at WF Towers [83]. This year of all the years – the ‘letting go’ one [WLP] – I randomly decide to bite on [a half-share of] this mystery blended malt. All part of the ‘letting my hair down’ program you see! Through the grapevine, we are told this is mainly made up of Macallan and Tamdhu.

    N: A raisiny slightly woody nose with a little honey citrus.

    T: Pretty much same again, it remains woody [grassy] and slightly sharp on the [raisin-y] malty citrusy side of life, in keeping with a number of G&M’s Speymalt’s in recent years.

    F: Familiar whisky all-sorts that one might find from a 19yo [sherry refill] Glenlossie, Dailuaine – or indeed – Tamdhu.

    C: A little edgy [a smidgen over?], this is a fine session malt. There’s nothing particularly outstanding to report, but competency is [as expected] high.

      Very sherried and fruity. Lovely nose.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Dark fruits, oranges, freshly cut wood.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Very intense finish. Dried fruits, alcoholic, very strong and a little bit of wood
