SMWS Advent Day 20
6th March 2006, 304 bottles, refill bourbon
Nose - Meaty, cereal peat, kind of dusty with a burnt pastry feel to it. Cut quince (how can things smell hairy? They do), quiche (I guess that's just baked egg with the pastry), and a vaguely sour seafoody thing.
Body - Bright, hot and sour, the whisky equivalent of lime and fish sauce (though it doesn't taste of either). Sweet cask and quite young peated spirit.
Finish - Medium with green chilli and white pepper.
A by the numbers Ardmore. John McC always liked society 66s but I often found them unremarkable, and this is the same. Not to say I haven’t had some absolute crackers though!
