SMWS Advent Day 8
21st September 2006, refill bourbon, 147 bottles
Nose - Weird. Biscuity, butyric, creamy and oddly "adult" - it's got pepto-bismol (that took some placing), laundry and custard creams. Germolene and the smell of an office smoking room (it's the sofas).
Body - Much better than I was expecting, this is soft, full of fruit fool and rich with boiled sweets and cut plums. Peppery excitement from a stray rolling tobacco strand in the mouth. More bitter with water, don't add it.
Finish - Long with another surprise - burning citrus- and at the end and some chilli heat. Demands another sip, I need some more healing fruit fool!
A robust, challenging whisky - good for a dram but too much heat and weirdness otherwise. This one is in stock.
