    I’ve always wondered why these miniatures get overlooked at auction, and then stumbled across this: ‘,… this series was produced in 1985 It does not purport to contain whisky from the named distillery. The contents are incidental & not intended for consumption’ worthpoint.com. All the more for us then!

    N: This isn’t tea-spooned Balvenie, the name relates to the old Burnside distillery in Campbeltown, established in 1825. In actual fact it smells more like a Clynelish.
    T: Clynelish confirmed on the palate too.
    F: Lime cubes and coal smoke is all I noted.
    C: I love this. Further reading: lostdistillery.com.

    Light version: Fresh and really punchy for just 40% abv. Really good.
    • Nose
      Malty, little honey, exotic fruits, some pineapples, ripe bananas
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, again exotic fruits, quinces, hints of oak wood, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Long and burning, little zesty in the end
