SPIRIT OF SPEYSIDE FESTIVAL 2018 BOTTLING
The 12th release from Dramfool is a portion of a 22 year old ex-sherry butt single malt from The Speyside Distillery. The whisky was bottled un-chill-filtered at cask strength of 55.0% and 156 bottles filled.
Nose neat: Very sweet with sherry, plums, cherries, honey, wood varnish and furniture polish. Blackcurrants with liquorice, Barossa Shiraz and sweet fruitcake.
Taste neat: Honeyed oats, cranachan with a savoury undertone, caramel and very sweet. Fruitcake comes through again.
Nose diluted: A leather handbag filled with dark fruits and demerara sugar. The merest hint of freshly struck matches.
Taste diluted: Very sweet with light caramel, fruit cake, syrup and heather honey. Blackcurrant liquorice sweets linger in the background.
