Blog Post Three: Now I'm getting the hang of this…
Triple distilled with no peat and distilled at Springbank. This came from an idea from the legendary Frank McHardy, who used to work at Busmills. This flagship 10yo, fully matured in ex boubon casks
According to blogger SWB:
"Palate: Thick and mouth coating with gently sweet, fruity oils with a pinch of spices. The quality from the nose comes through clearly into the palate. There’s a fudgey, creamy quality, and chocolate. Finish: Jam packed with gorgeous flavours, some of which are from the great quality bourbon wood. It’s really long and leaves flavours on your palate for yonks, as long as many a peated whisky. Thoughts: I was hugely impressed with this dram when I had it as the first dram of a big Islay tour, and it always stood out in my mind after the tour, which already marked it out as a potential gem."
