Quite spicy with just a slight fruitiness. Rather complex but the bitterness pulls it down a bit. – Score: 74/100

Bastard Malts 1/2 – When You Don’t Know What’s in the Bottle

In the last decades, single malt Scotch whisky has gained an ever growing popularity among whisky lovers, mainly because it shows the character of a single distillery, sometimes even from a single cask. This is opposed to blends or blended malts where the master blender tries to create an specific taste by combining whiskies from different distilleries.

Promising nose but the bitterness takes away much of the pleasure. A few years too long in the cask? – Score: 78/100
