  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Some of the individual components were probably fantastic - I am not certain if the overall product is greater than the sum of its parts.
    • Nose
      An immediate hit of warmth to the back of the nose.
    • Taste
      Hard to describe the taste - fruit perhaps - very pleasant and on a freezing night outside very pleasant.
    • Finish
      A long lingering taste that just keeps on giving.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    The Lost Distilleries Blend (49.3%, The Blended Whisky Company, blend, batch #6, 534 bottles, 2015) Another mad bottling by the mad people at Master of Malt. This time they’ve blended Mosstowie, Port Ellen, Glenisla, Imperial, Caperdonich, Glen Mhor, and Brora, plus some grain. WHAT, they have blended Brora? Where did I put my fantasy Gurkha knife? Colour: straw. Nose: yeah well, we all know the best blend recipe. 1. choose great malts. 2. blend. In this case they’ve managed to create some kind of ultra-austere, mega-mineral whisky that reeks of wet old concrete, damp ashes, brake fluid, sand, plaster, and simply ‘one old machine in a old factory’. Mouth: we’re changing directions. The lemons and grapefruit kick in, and would come with more peat (PE, I suppose), some salt, a wee touch of rounded bubblegumy notes (Mosstowie?) and ‘a farm near the sea’ (Brora, obviously). Plus some jammy fruits, such as plums, that couldn’t not come from Imperial and Caperdonich. As for Glenisla, and although I’ve tried a handful of them, I just couldn’t tell you. Certainly not the ‘peat’. And Glen Mhor? That might be this engine-y, greasy side. Finish: long, and rather ashy and peppery, although there is a little fudge and maybe sugar-coated caraway seeds (what they give you in Indian restaurants with the bill  ;-)) Comments: excellent, and certainly not dissonant (which could have happened). But the question is, was the Brora even better, or not? Crikey, I really don’t seem to find my Gurkha knife, they are very lucky up there. SGP:463 - 90 points.

    N: Youthful and creamy
    T: Grain, so much [young?] grain - but i’m sure that cant be the case, knowing full well what aged treasures went into the last batch.  
    F: Light, sweet, creamy vanillas.
    C: Decent enough but hardly even a shadow to ‘batch 5’ WB.

    Scores a C-
