Whisky Reviews for The Double Single Third Edition

- It’s not a bad whisky by any means, although the nose is more interesting than the palate. I’d probably rather get a single cask Glen Elgin 22-23y for that price though.
A very creamy nose here, quite a bit of fruits too. I’m getting mainly green apple and pear. Soft vanilla, honey, toffee and some nice crème brûlée. There’s also a popcorn note, I’m guessing that’s the Girvan influence.
A strong arrival which is quite peppery, and unexpected. Then kiwi’s and apple. Some sugared cereal (Frosties). Quite a simple one actually.
Creamy butter again, a bit of lemons and a mandarin tangy note. Medium long.
- Jim Murray has awarded 97 points to the Double Single and was 2018 Scotch Blend of the Year.
- The surprise of spice is always nice and exciting, has interesting interplay, I like it.
Pear dissolved in caramel, lots of vanilla, exciting blend, honey, melon, green apple, floral, kiwi, hints of mint and cinnamon
Spicy, more than the nose would suggest, ginger, nutmeg, melon, mango, green apple, papaya, nice round despite beautiful malt and spice, light tobacco, fruit salad, beeswax, pineapple, kiwi
Medium long, warming, sweet Obstreste continue with the seasoning and malt, a little honey
