    Now this is a first - Burnside & Warhead, side by side. Burnside is undisclosed Balvenie with a teaspoon of Glenfiddich. Warhead is undisclosed Glenfiddich with a teaspoon of Balvenie. Both distilleries sell teaspoon stock all the time and TBWC have examples of both.

    N: So, after the Balvenie with a teaspoon of Glenfiddich WB comes a Glenfiddich with a teaspoon of Balvenie - neat! This isnt as sweet, being more straight laced [distillery character personified so far then]. Water brings out a smokiness [from the char I reckon], and a chalkiness. It's never going to be as relaxed like the Balvenie [such is Glenfiddich's relative astringent style], but theres bubblegum confectionary on opening out however.
    T: The first truly 'full bodied' dram of the day, the kind of full bodied-ness that comes from slow & sure maturation from supportive wood.
    F: Waxy/buttery with a slight spirity bite. 
    C: It's so ‘Fiddich’. Just as good as the Balvenie [which my preference leans to slightly more], but there's something about this ones more austere side that I appreciate also - a very soft Mannochmore if you will. Score-wise, it's tit for tat - they are both very good.Scores a B

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Spicy with cinnamon and clove. Honeysuckle bursts through after a minute, with chocolate and caramel in tow. Charred oak and a touch of red chilli.Palate: The spice continues on the palate, but with a much more herbaceous approach. Sweet, jammy notes develop, before making way for cluster hops and white pepper.Finish: Quite drying. Touches of Black Forest gâteau appear near the end, rich in cherry sweetness.Overall: Spicier than the first batch - one for the autumnal months...
