12 Drams: #7 Speyside 21yo 1996/2017 (61.7%)

A firecracker dram for Hogmanay, we reckon this sherry cask speyside (from the Speyside distillery, no less) is an ideal way to bring in the new year.

  1. Ali Maltiply

    Here are my notes:

    Nose: Wow, an incredibly intense nose. There’s toffee and marshmallow, and also grape juice from the sherry.

    Taste: Mulling spices – cloves and spicy orange. Caramel.

    Finish: A classic sherry cask finish- long, dry and nutty.

  2. Happy Hogmanay everyone! My thoughts below…

    Nose: Lovely sweet sherry scents mixed with chippy chips in newspaper. An older gentleman’s cologne.
    Taste: oh wow, big curry vibes! Then unusual fruit, like a pulpy citrus thing, kinda like what I thought a dragon fruit would taste like. Really interesting – a big load of cask action, and quite exotic too!
    Finish: XXX exotica, spicy zest.

  3. Saskia

    Nose: pineapple and tinned peaches
    Taste: Mazowe orange and vodka – the morning after the night before.
    Finish: Couldn’t get much, felt quite short and salty.
    Score: 7.4
