The Great Drams – Summer of Sport, Blended Scotch Whisky

A very aptly named Whisky as 2024 has a plethora of sport including :-

Euro 2024 Tournament in Germany

The Open Championship at Royal Troon

Wimbledon in London

Olympic Games in Paris

This expression is one of The Great Drams Blended Cask Series and bottled at 48.2% Alc/vol.

The Great Drams Co suggests that you drink it your way, neat, with a splash of water, over ice, or in a cocktail. It is great in an Old Fashioned, my choice of a Whisky cocktail.

Great Drams is a family-owned business concentrating on quality, limited edition Whiskies and Whiskeys for all at a fair and reasonable price.

This cask blend is sherry matured and aged for 10 years in Oloroso sherry casks.

Let’s open the bottle and have a taste.

The Great Drams – “Summer of Sport”, Blended Cask Series, Blended Scotch Whisky, 48.2% Alc/vol.

Colour…Toffee popcorn.

Nose…A succulent, sweet seductive aroma, chewy fruity wine gums, pear and sweet apple juice, sawn oak, vanilla.

Taste…Sherry-soaked sultanas, more vanilla, honey, marmalade, ripe orchard fruits, dates toffee, and candied pineapple, I have a dancing flamenco on my palate.

Finish…Medium finish with the sweet fruits, vanilla, and sherry notes lingering longest.

A particular fine cask blended Scotch Whisky great on its own and as the base of a fine Whisky cocktail.
