High Coast 63

Advent day 4

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.

Personal note: I’ve a stuffy nose tonight which likely affects my ability to sample.

Subtle smoke, fresh green apples, a pleasant flowery scent.
Score: 23

Palate: 22
Starts of gentle with buttery toffee and then turns towards honeysuckle and floral tastes. The alcohol become more prominent after a while.

Slowly wears off towards toffee and a buttery mouthfeel.

Personal note: Holy cow did I peg this wrong! I just did not pick up on that alcohol nor peat.. Not sure wether it’s due to having a bit of a cold or just the fact that this is my fourth time EVER reviewing a whisky.. probably the latter!
