Original bottling for Calgary & Victoria Companions of the Quaich – Hogshead 911 – 55.4%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Vanilla, nuts, lemon, banana, hints of hay and resin, ginger, white pepper.
Palate: Banana, lemon zest, hints of pineapple, hazelnuts, candied ginger and pepper.
Finish: Rather long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: An enjoyable straightforward bourbon cask whisky, nothing less and nothing more.
Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
