- Antiquary 12. Consumed Oct 2020. Aroma has some dodgy casks up front. Musty old oak and a hint of sulphur perhaps. Otherwise clean airy vanilla ice cream grain. Vodka and vanilla with a touch of perfume later on. Body is good, oily. Taste is oak-forward, cleaner than aroma, nice weight, a little spice to it. Extremely easy and refined. Simple and straight-forward favouring drinkability and cleanness of character over complexity and interest. The sort of dram to ease into an evening next to a fire, preparing my palate for the better stuff while still getting some nice vibes. Later on the aroma settles into something akin to dragonfruit. The oily body is perhaps the best aspect. It's a good blend.
- Nice balanced, soft, easy and sweet blend on a low abv.
Malt, citrus notes, glue, stone flour, smoke removed, some pipe tobacco, some honey, tender apple
sweet nut flour, lemon drops, tree sap, freshly sliced better, ginger, licorice, bittersweet - quite smooth - but here and there the alcohol is tickling more clearly in the mouth. At first it looks rather thin - but becomes more intense on the palate
Bissl shines through the grain
clearly lemon, nuts, honey, bitter - inharmonic, not tasty - drinkable yes, pleasure no
- This Scottish blended whiskey has a peated aroma and the taste is malty and citrus. The finish is soft and spicy.
