Type of whisk(e)y – Whisky (Scotch).
How long has the whisk[e]y bottle been open? – Newly opened.
Introduction to the whisk[e]y (casks used, distillery, is it a special release etc) – Part of the open special series. Michael Henry and Colin Montgomery. Straight neck and swan stills. Bourbon cask and a Rioja finish (not sure for how long).
Appearance – Deep orange with a pink hue.
Nose – Stewed Apple sauce, raspberry ripple ice-cream, mint, menthol, plum.
Palate – Oak spice, IPA, lemon zest, toffee apple, black grape soda, custard, cigar smoke.
Finish – Smoke increases in the finish but is still mild, strawberry and raspberry notes.
Overall thoughts – A lot going on and I think it’s at the perfect ABV at 46%
Would definitely buy again £50.
