ISLAY WHISKY FESTIVAL 2018 BOTTLING
The 13th release from Dramfool is a Port Charlotte 15 years old bourbon hogshead, Distilled December 2001, bottled December 2016.
The bottles were stored by the cask owner in Stornaway for a year before deciding to sell to me.
The whisky was bottled un-chill-filtered at cask strength of 58.3% yielding 195 bottles.
Nose neat: Very sweet with butterscotch, Germolene, pencil sharpenings and a sooty finish.
Taste neat: Creamy and sweet with honey, tropical fruit and Bazooka Joes. The medicinal theme continues with Elastoplast, then ash.
Nose diluted: Germolene, Bazooka Joes, honey and waxed paper.
Taste diluted: Very sweet and medicinal. Honey and menthol linger on a smooth finish.
