Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

    Nose: Crunchie bars, baked apples and a drizzle of custard. Soft, sweet spice lurks underneath – cinnamon toast with a pinch of nutmeg. Winey notes develop, with sherried raisins and a touch of red-wine tannin.

    Palate: Thick sherry-cask fruit, a touch of singed raisin and black rubber. The spice is soft and controlled at first, but builds to become warming. Anise and apple sauce rise through the middle. A pool of dark and sticky raisin jam sits underneath.

    Finish: Dark sugar and spice with a touch of char. The sugar becomes baked apples and the spice gets tingly.

    Comment: Deceptively rich sherry rises out of a fruity core. The spice, and dried and fresh fruit are well balanced.

    For my friend and I at last night's Elixir tasting, this was the star among stars. I won;t attempt to match Billy's notes...I'll just sum them up in one word: gorgeous! There was one yet to be released ancient beguiling beast in the line up whose eyewatering price tag would buy me a dozen of these! Would I? You bet! But even one would do. Congratulations to Ollie and the Elixir team. At the other end of the taste and price spectrum, the 8YO Askaig and "Peat" CS are outstanding value.
