135.41 – Arclight

56.3% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 8yo ~ Highland

A massive and immensely weighty nose that began with carbolic acidity, tar, charred bacon rashers in hot oil and English mustard whipped together with wasabi and horseradish. Then boiler smoke, petrol, iodine, hot kelp in the sunshine and a deafening peat note. Water did little to calm things down. Lots of carbolic soap, lanolin, wood ash, hot BBQ coals…read more


113.53 – A Bit of a Bibelot

62.6% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 11yo ~ Speyside

Our noses encountered caramel, foamy shrimps and bananas, Crunchie bars and marmalade, combined with toasted coconut, cinnamon stick and carpentry workshops.

56.6% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 12yo ~ Highland

Have you ever sprinkled on your sweet porridge some cask char or put vanilla pods into a cigar tube – no, well you have not lived. Have you ever tried the agricultural rum from Haiti called Clairin made from sugar cane juice, sweet, earthy, fiery with mineral and medicinal notes but at the same time a svelte, silky palate with plenty of vanilla and spices like saffron….read more


80.26 – Casual Biscuit Scoffing

59.9% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead ~ 9yo ~ Speyside

An easy and entertaining nose we thought, giving impressions of old custard creams rattling around a biscuit tin. Then shoe polish, new leather, pollens and yellow flowers. Easy, simple and charming. Water brought out canvass, crumbled oatcakes, runny honey, crushed nettles and lemon curd. The mouth displayed an initial richness of olive oil, then a sweeter aspect with icing sugar….read more


73.127 – In The Mood

61.8% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 10yo ~ Speyside

A floral aroma of verbena plants mixed with red and orange marigold before we opened a box of apple and cinnamon muesli. On the palate a spicy sweet chilli sensation to start was followed by lemon curd served with a tart rhubarb compote….read more


63.87 – Dreamsicle-Creamsicle

54.0% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 19yo ~ Speyside

We submerged our candy dipstick into a tropical sherbet fizz, mango, papaya banana and dragon fruit before we enjoyed poached pears with vanilla and cinnamon. Next, we scooped cardamon whipped cream over our chai spiced apples and enjoyed them with dark chocolate strawberry creams with a boozy creamsicle float – orange soda, whipped cream with vodka and vanilla ice cream….read more


46.123 – Rose Vinho Verde

54.4% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 12yo ~ Speyside

A silver dish with fresh peony blossom and rose potpourri was put on a varnished oak table next to a fruit bowl filled with berries, oranges and bananas. On the taste neat we also found those floral and fruity flavours like in heather shortbread….read more


26.191 – Oaky Fruit Sorbet

58.7% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 10yo ~ Highland

Initially sour apples and lemon skin merged with fresh pineapple and hard pears while honeysuckle and hazelnut oil joined cask char and beeswax. Waxy textures continued on the palate but now with toffee apples, butterscotch and rum and raisin fudge….read more


19.67 – Schmoozing in a Greenhouse

57.5% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 18yo ~ Highland

Initial nosing suggested this was a lighter example than other casks from this batch. Some lovely, and very elegant, notes of honeysuckle, aged sweet wines and wet autumnal leaves greeted us. Reduction brought more floral vibes of hot greenhouses….read more


4.299 – Hard Boiled Dregs

60.9% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 13yo ~ Highland

A sooty and grubbier than usual example we felt. Initial notes of sooty coal scuttles and puffer smoke were detected. Then oily coastal aspects, BBQ coals, distant peat smoke, crushed beach pebbles, sand and tarry rope. With water it became more aromatic and complex, with bandages, smoked sea salt, caraway, lemon rinds….read more


3.335 – The Lavender Conspiracy

57.3% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead ~ 17yo ~ Islay

A joyous concoction of harbour-side aromas delivered rock pools, barnacles and seaweed alongside black olive tapenade and sawdust coated cereals.

What a fabulous colour! What a fabulous nose! The heavenly scent of thinly sliced Iberico ham straight off the bone, sweet raisins, fudge and well-aged prune brandy – a real sniffers dram. On the palate neat like a fiery hot passionate Flamenco dance with fast footwork, ferocious clapping so full of energy….read more
