Re: September 2012 Tasting- Give us your Bourbon...
99-10 Gordon and MacPhail Clynelish cask 312936
I had a bit of a debate about its cask provenence when the bottle was new, expecting it to be some sort of Wine cask. But the people at Binny's assured me that this was ex bourbon, though had previously held some Islay whisky.
N: Seaweed, and candy, lots of candy, salt water taffy, caramel, and an odd touch of tobacco smoke. Nice hint of apples in there too, and a light tropical fruit that I can not identify right now.
T: Again sweet, a sour lemon note, vanilla and coconut, with a bit of salt. Also a touch of peat. I can't really identify much else in there, but it feels like a heck of a lot going on, possibly the contrast of the sour, the sweet, the salt, and the vanilla all in one.
F: Seaweed and salt water, with a good bit of peat, but not much smoke. Oddly sweet, with just a hint of vanilla.
