    The Foz doesn’t recall where this sample came from, somewhere from our Campbeltown trip very possibly.
    N: Instant joy from an 'aah’ nose, one very rich for a mere 32 year old - still fairly youthful for grain. The profile oozes opulent vanilla icecream with tutti fruity, caramel & treacle as well as fusty fruits and a Christmas-y vibe that speaks of a sherry cask. The Foz gets lots of liquorice. I get the natural sticks more than the confectionary.

    T: Arrives just as you’d like, yet feisty though perfectly balanced with no mention of over-oakiness, or it ever being an issue. If anything, it’s more a resinous oakiness in character that appears to be perfectly 'used’ by Diageo’s once favoured grain spirit. We’ve more dusty fruitiness & rich vanilla icecream slowly turning to cocoa & chocolate flavour.
    F: Short at first with balsa notes, yet further sips reveal just what a sherry cask this was. By comparison, the Cameronbridge doesn't cut it as it did nearly two year's ago [blog].
    C: I can’t remember a grain ever topping a session at the very end. Incredibly, The Foz concurs. From memory, it’s one of the best grains I’ve had in a long while. As for cask #128317 [WF], yikes!
