Bunna Stoaisha 7 yr old

The Sipping Shed exists for the love of whisky. The history, the places, the people, the process, the unforgettable taste… the story of whisky. We wanted to tell that story our way, with our whisky and so The Sipping Shed was born…

THE SIPPING SHED

Appearance – Very light straw in colour, beads up on the swirl line, and eventually drops syrupy teardrop legs.

Nose – Fruity peat, vanilla custard, cereals, flapjack, this could be a Smokey jam tart, definitely apricots and peaches, and a very light menthol.

Palate – Loads of salinity, Maldon rock salt, it’s really oily too, stoned fruits, also very coastal, black peppercorns, chilli’s, oak, ginger. I’m getting hand rolling tobacco now, raisins, more salinity, figs? Some general stewed dark fruit notes, very nice.

Finish – Salinity as I raise the glass to my mouth, quite long, another spice monster @gordonsmith63, very oily in flavour, sea spray, chilli’s, dark chocolate, raisins, black cherries, and liquorice, very very nice.

My thoughts – Considering Dan thinks this dram needs more time in the cask, i thinks it’s a great whisky already, it’ll be glorious when he thinks it is ready, and the salinity from it lasted further into the evening, super super stuff.

Notes – This bottling is presented in its natural colour, non chill filtered, and at cask strength.

Many thanks to – Dan Hipshon, founder of The Sipping Shed.
