Well lads and lasses! It is time to surface from work hibernation and re-start whisky explorations.
Up first is a quartet from my advent calendar minis!
The first two were cracked open with a fabulous Sharing Angel late February when we had the pleasure of enjoying one of the last whisky festivals in Germany pre-COVID.
We had great expectations… but alas were not entirely satisfied:
- Cambus 24 year (1993) 52.7% (North Star) – Like opening up a big old dusty cupboard, earthy, piquant, sour fruits
- Glenlossie 8 year (2010) Cask 8645 56.8% (Hannah Whisky Merchants – Lady of the Glen) – Woodsy, honey… with the port pipe finish adding an odd dimension
Whereas the balance were tasted in the virtual company of two different Mumbai whisky groups and each were enjoyable in their way:
- Glenturret 14 year (2001) 54% (Bartels Whisky – Highland Laird) – Delightful summer dram
- Dailuaine 10 year 46% (Douglas Laing’s Provenance) – Earthy and yet still approachable
For 3cl bottles, you may be surprised to learn all of them had a bit remaining, so before finalizing my notes, I had a chance to try them again… curious to know more? Check out my tasting notes over the next few days.
