Advent day 16
These reviews are the first ones I attempt and are part of the advent calendar me and my good friend Jim made for each other. These 24 whiskies I’m trying will serve as a “bootcamp” for getting me started on reviewing my whisky. As such I hope the reviews will improve over time. To clarify the process; this is a blind tasting and the post title and category is set after the reveal.
Nose Sidenote: I’m a little bit stuffy tonight but I’ll push through.
A little smoke lingering in my nose.. it’s not dominant tho. There’s buttery toffee. Almost like a overly buttered fresh toast right from the toaster. It’s mouth watering!
The nose already told most of it. Toast with butter, some toffee or butterscotch. A bit of vanilla. Quickly chased by a peated smokyness. The mouth feel is a little bit dry and acidic.
I’d say a medium long bordering on short finish. A bit of an herbal finish with maybe some honey splash.
If you like this sort of whisky this is an easy one to enjoy. From start to finish it’s easy to drink but also a bit one dimensional. The colour reminds me of lemons sitting in a glass of coca cola.
I think this is a NAS whisky, single malt. Could be a Lowland whisky but more likely it’s from a younger distillery not located in Scotland. Guessing is pointless since Jim has so many whiskies from younger distilleries around the globe. But hey, let’s say it’s from Denmark!
45% ABV matured in virgin oak.

Personal note: Well well well.. It was actually a lowland after all! Not much right after that tho hah!
