18th day of The Whisky Advent Calender from the guys at Drink By The Dram brings us …. ehm… an ? No label, nothing. We don’t know what it is really, and hoping the guys from Drink By The Dram will tell us so we can adjust our notes with extra information 🙂
On the nose I get breakfast cereals, dried fruits, tutti frutti, honey, red apple, passion fruit, oranges, pomolo, vanilla, raisins, white pepper and a creamy mango pineapple smoothie feeling.
Sweet and spicy palate, with lots of creamy honey and light chocolate notes going through the high amount of different fruit notes. From orchard fruits to tropical fruits… The white pepper from the nose becomes some red chili pepper with sweet dense fruitcake and thick cream.
It feels balanced and has a good length finish, and leaves me wanting for more. Scoring this one an 8,5 out of 10. Don’t know what it is but don’t mind a full size bottle… It feels that it might be a bit of a higher strength dram and thinking of a grain… So guys, please do tell us what it is so we can start hunt for a bottle 🙂
Well the people at Master of Malt and Drink By The Dram came back quickly with the information that this dram is the Girvan Patent Still – Proof strength (57,1%) Info behind the link. Thanks guys for the quick service!
