Best Scotch Blended Malt 2015
Plenty of wax and shoe polish at first nosing, then rather metal polish, old penny book, toolbox, gravel, play-doh, camphor, eucalyptus... I find this nose exceptional, there are probably very old whiskies inside.
A wonderful palate of sherry, walnut wine, demerara sugar, pomegranates, medlar, a little caramel and vanilla fudge, orange squash, raisins. Excellent body. Long finish with more spices. Ginger, bitter oranges. A lot happening in this one. Some parts may have been quite old. High class.
Definite touch of peat on the nose, a slightly medicinal edge. Savoury smoke on the palate, good and chewy, with a really herbaceous edge.
Hints of dried fruit, liquorice and burnt coffeed spices come through. Medium length with sherry notes lingering.
