I know, sounds horrible, and yet But lets not exaggerate, this baby wont win Booze Mags best nose of the anniversario di matrimonio 40 anni regali century competition.

Rum plays a part in the culture of most islands of the West Indies as well as in the Canadian Maritimes and Newfoundland.
With water: correction, a smoky manzanilla.With only a subtle bitter note.Finish: rather short, dry.Comments: I find it a little different, rather less emphatic than the first sample that I got.It is rather more aromatic, and fruitier than what youd expect from Mortlach, Id say, but I find this nose really superb.Plenty of plasticine, sour dough, cooked cabbage, public pool, damp peat (not burned yes that smells of something and fresh baguette.Not much Mortlachness to be had this time, but lets dig deeper Mouth: no, this is Mortlach.Lets have them at random for a funnier experience.Finish: a little short but the flavours are perfect, from salty mustard to walnuts and bitter chocolate.Leather, waxes, bitter apples, eucalyptus, perhaps a little Swiss cheese (genuine Gruyère, not the utter junk they sell us in supermarkets and plenty of walnut liqueur.Eagle Rare 17-year-old 90 Kentucky Straight Bourbon, elijah Craig 12-year-old 133.2 Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Barrel Proof.With water: sawdust and varnish.
