Darkness! North British 18 Years Old Oloroso Cask Finish

World's Best Grain Whisky 2015

Characterful nose showing plenty of oak characteristics, with fresh toast, sugared almonds, sawdust and spices. Very gentle delivery belies the higher strength.

Medium-full palate with good oily texture.

Sweet caramel and spicy oak with the strength adding depth and heat.

Impressive stuff.

Well balanced creamy tablet on the nose. A touch of table salt on orange peel. Orange bitters over well done flapjacks on the palate.

A kind of cocktail bar’s secret ingredient.

Brushwood, hints of smoke, barbeque. The smell of hot, wet pine. I’m in a sauna. Dried mango and maple syrup for pudding. Hot, spicy, lots of wood. Couple of drops introduces a slice of melon, the finish is short and dry.
