We have a few people randomly selected to try whiskies before they come out called the London Tasting Panel (LTP), as we like to challenge peoples palates to try something new we have a lot of 100% blind taste sessions to see if people like a dram especially those they say they don’t like!
This dram like so many other single grains was mistaken for the Single Malt one person even thinking it was from a closed distillery!!
NOSE: Strawberries with cream then hard boil sweets.
London Tasting Panel (LTP): The nose has been described as a lucky bag of sweets to a sublime summer fruity compote with all agreed strawberries and cream along with the sweets is spot on!
PALATE: Custard slice, salted caramel and pumpkin seed.
(LTP): Blind tasting this dram thought Lowland for sure with a soft chewy vanilla and spice, some subtle citrus spice notes.
FINISH: Vanilla ice cream then toasted rye bread gives a little spice in the end.
(LTP) All agreed about the finish what more can we add but too say this is possibly one of the best grains we have tasted.
