    From the Whiskysponge shop:

    Introducing the Whisky Sponge Christmas Lockdown special: 'Blend On The Run' a 29 year old blended malt Scotch whisky with a marketing-ready story...

    Many years ago, in what you call the 'good old days', there was an independent bottler called Signatory and it had literally shit loads of cask samples just lying about the place. Dark ones, pale ones, mostly empty ones, full ones. All sorts of delicious and funny things from the bottlings they had been steadily releasing over the previous fifteen or so years. One day, the king of Signatory, a young lad called Andrew who disapproved of carpark BBQs and enjoyed fork lift trucks, decided to sort through all these cask samples and mix the good ones together. The minimum age for these samples had to be 16 years old and they had to be single malt Scottish whiskies.

    Amongst their total was many, many older Signatory bottlings from the 1970s and 1960s - including some famous distilleries and vintages - they all went into the vat and that mixture was then laid to rest in a first fill sherry butt for another 13 years until it was legally 29 years of age.

    This is that resultant whisky, bottled at a natural strength of 45.6% and limited to 314 bottles. It tastes like liquefied Christmas and has a silly label based on a pun I came up with one morning that has absolutely nothing to do with all that stuff you just read.

    Nose: The good old Sydney flavor, jam chocolate cake, a little peat, not complicated, simple, direct, and instantly take you back to the 50's~60's whisky beauty era.

    Drink: The wine is thin and thin, but there are hardly any spikes that will hurt you. The feeling of old Sydney reverberating in the mouth is so good.

    Overall: Although it is not very complicated and the body is relatively thin, but at this price you can taste such a wonderful'old Sydney' flavor. And it's so easy to drink, what can I say?

    Freshly poured, there is a distinct smell of oily dried figs and sulfur. The caramel syrup, dried red apples, citrus jam, slightly new leather smell, oily feeling, and a hint of lemon peel oil after waking up for 10 minutes. In about 20 minutes, some of the original flavors became less obvious. Instead, a lot of fat, a little cream, slight black truffles, ripe mangoes and durians were given. Unfortunately, the sulfur smell was stronger throughout. In about half an hour, the aroma will be more oxidized and green, meaningless. 89
    It is rich in fat, with dried red apples, old citrus, black pepper, fennel, and full body. After the cup wakes up, it quickly gives out strong ripe mango, red apple juice, sweet orange, slightly barbecue sauce, slightly smoky, soft cream and black pepper, medium-bodied, better than grease and flavor, with average levels . 90
    Black pepper, grapefruit peel, chocolate, woody tannins. 90
