97-13 SV UCF Cragganmore Cask 1130

Getting massive amounts of candy and green apple from this today, both on the nose and on the palate. This Cragganmore has a bit of a finish, reminiscent again of green apple, and hard caramel candies. In addition to the green apple, there are subtle hints of other fruits, touch of mango, kiwi, and pineapple to really liven it up. More sweet and candy like than fruity, but a wonderful summer dram.

99-09 GM Dufftown Cask 8787


Its reputation remains as the Tropical Fruit punch dram. Though it is starting to loose that, developing a slight cream flavor and richness to it, along with more temperate fruits. Good dose of strawberries in the dram today. Aroma though is a little spirity, but it is a CS whisky.

95-15 SV Imperial cask 50314

Nose is light, full of malt, with a good bit of candy and cookies. Taste is mostly malt, but hints of vanilla, and coconut, with more of the coconut and vanilla coming out on the finish.

Surprisingly light for 57.4% abv.
