    According to TSC owner Ben Curtis, this whisky didn’t work at all at 62% abv. At 60% they discovered a sweet spot. No more, no less.

    N: Salty and heathery with notes of TCP and oysters. Very laphroaig/Caol Ila-like with a drop of Lagavulin.
    T: Vegetal-sweet, candy, smoked oil…
    F: Dry seaweed & popcorn.
    C: A sweet spot indeed. Another independent outshining the officials. Where have we seen that before? Earlier at TBWC stand, that’s where! [blog].Scores a B

    N: It’s clean enough yet it’s a funky one that’s hard to read. I picked up notes of sweet corn, some tomato and honey with a touch of emulsion & vodka.
    T: An oily rich malt with chillies [Thai heat] and galangal too with light pepper and some rubber putty. Hard to read, hard to understand/get to grips with but that’s not to say it isn’t interesting nor engaging.
    F: Lovely drying [non-sugary] sweetness.
    C: Serge said of a TBWC Deanston [batch 2] recently: “whenever you need a different and totally un-commercial dram, this baby would make for a worthy candidate. The whisky world needs these funny drams”. True for this baby too! I like the fact it’s different, different to Scotch, different to what’s around on the market in general. It’s ticking lots of boxes but would this work at ‘normal’ strength? Good cask though, and thoughtfully bottled at strength. £63 is rather pricey for a 7yo. but i’m tempted all the same.

    Scores a C+
