Dramfest 2014, single dram note.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Grassy and herbal at first. Polished oak. Flowery notes. Orange peel. Some soap.

Taste

Very waxy. Lemon. Vanilla with crisp red fruit and orange. Hazelnuts. Cedar wood. Ginger.

Finish

Quite long. Bitter-sweet oakiness. Spices of black pepper but also chili peppers. Menthol at the end.

Comments

A decent Strathisla. May be a little too oaky for me. Sample from Dennis.

Tasting Notes from Mark Watt (WM Cadenhead):

Nose: Warm stewed apples; cinnamon, cherries, smoked almonds and parma ham.

Palate: Lots of red apples, rhubard and sherry. A touch of spice and soft woodiness.

Finish: Warming sherry notes; soft spice; distant smokiness with pear skins.
