Mid-Summer Marvels SMWS Outturn June 2022 bottles below:
53.7% ~ 1st Fill Charred Oak Barrel ~ 9yo ~ Sweeden ~ £90.00
Production is now based in an innovative 37-metre high ‘gravity distillery’ where the forces of gravity are harnessed at every stage, from preparing the malt at the top of the structure to mashing, fermentation, distillation and finally to cask filling at the lowest level. The team has produced both a peated malt and a fruitier, unpeated style over the years since the distillery was founded… read more
56.7% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 18yo ~ Speyside ~ £100.80
The nose displayed a pleasant, sunny disposition, with flower meadows, grass, hay, blooms and blossoms, grape and bramble jelly, popcorn, paint and crème brulée – genteel and delightful. The palate was juicy and fruity – tinned mandarins in syrup, apricot Danish, fruit yoghurt, with sweet notes of candy canes, chocolate biscuits and caramelised parsnips; a warm finish of cinnamon and other mild spices… read more
61.1% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 9yo ~ Highland ~ £58.70
We imagined walking through a Sicilian lemon grove with magnolia trees all around us in full bloom with wooden beehives dotted across the landscape. There was a lovely delicate flavour of a crimson spice champagne cocktail using cranberry juice, fresh ginger, cinnamon, star anise, cognac and Champagne garnished with cranberries. Following the addition of water, the aroma turned sweeter with mango coulis, maple syrup, Greek style honey yoghurt and flapjacks with vanilla ice cream… read more
59.7% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 9yo ~ Highland ~ £57.00
Aromas of aniseed liqueur, peppermint chews and fisherman’s friends were joined by cranberry walnut bagels with hazelnut cream cheese and a Virgin Mary mocktail. On the palate neat, a gazpacho with sweet yellow onion, cucumber, red bell pepper, fresh basil, garlic and Sherry vinegar with honey and salt coated peanuts. Following a drop of water, we baked a lemon olive oil cake incorporating lemon in four ways – lemon zest, juice, extract and Limoncello… read more
61.9% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 15yo ~ Speyside ~ £75.60
We all associated the aroma somewhat with the colour green, kumquat (cultivar ‘Centennial Variegated), lime, honeydew melon, kiwi and pistachio ice cream. This theme carried on as we chewed on a green twig before we had a refreshing mint tea followed by a Berliner Weisse beer flavoured with sweet woodruff syrup giving it a vivid lime-cordial hue. Diluted the scent was that of strawberry tarts, flapjacks, butter icing and a new woolly jumper… read more
60.0% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 9yo ~ Speyside ~ £49.80
Mmm – an interesting nose – pencil cases and apothecary’s shelves, brandy snaps, cinnamon stick, gingerbread, clove-studded orange and Fisherman’s Friends. The palate was chalky and sweet – chocolate, carob, pralines and rum truffles, with some affable warmth on the finish – tobacco strands, pickled ginger and wasabi. The reduced nose was airy and fresh – like a day at the beach perhaps (melting ice-cream, cucumber sandwiches, perfumed sun lotion, plastic loungers)… read more
