Door last door, number 24, of the Drinks by the Dram Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar is open and a sample of The Half-Century Blend is revealed! This batch 3 of this expression coming from the Blended Whisky Company was made with whiskies that were aged for over 50 years and is bottled at 47,3%.
On the nose I can find flavours of warm apples, powdered sugar, creamy vanilla, mixed dark summer fruits, woodpolish, raisins, wood spices, dried fruits, apricots, orange marmalade, ginger and nuts.
The palate gives me cherries, blackcurrant, redcurrant, grilled pineapple, honey, creamy vanilla buns, powdered sugar, yellow fruit jam, apricots, ginger bread, Christmas cake, oranges, red caramel apples, lemon shavings, Victorian sponge cake, crushed mixed nuts and creamy mango juice…
A medium length finish with sweet and fruity notes with a hint of nuts and mocha in the back. Thanks #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskyAdvent ! Have a great Christmas!
