    ‘Philthy’ whisky

    We try this last one blind. Phil points out the large outturn size, indicating the whisky probably came from a sherry gorda, the largest widely-used cask permitted by the SWA. Further reading: SW

    N: Starts rancid with apricot liqueur over a roasted leg of lamb and a nail polish top coat. It soon reveals itself as a blatant heavy-creamy oloroso bomb [possibly madeira], with toffee, leather and orange oils,….. a shopping list in fact. I detect some phenols, albeit low.
    T: Extreme! Very much in keeping with the SMWS’s ‘Temptation to the Dark Side’ [WLP86 WLP87], this was best placed at the end of the flight as it could have easily corrupted palates early on.
    F: Boing! This is rather sulphury but in a good way.
    C: One you’d have to be in the mood for. Out of the 27 of us, only one guessed Bunna. As soon as he calls it however, it rings true.
