Drinks by the Dram Regions of Scotland Whisky Tasting Set 5x3cl 43.6% ABV
Drinks by the dram have created a five piece tasting pack to show case the wide range of whisky that Regional Scotland has to offer! In this pack there is 1 x 3cl sample pack of each of the following:
Glenfarclas 15 Year Old: The colour is that of rich golden amber and is a great complex whisky. The nose of this whisky is complex with a range of aromas such as butterscotch, cinnamon and honey. The flavour is full bodied and a balance of sherried sweetness, malty tones and peaty flavour with a gentle smoky finish.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old: A much sought-after single malt with the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering richness and a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting tipple.
Talisker 10 Year Old: Powerful, fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm. Sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit moves to smoke, brine and an explosion of pepper. In the mouth it is medium bodied, mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The finish is drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old: Awarded a Silver Outstanding Medal Winner in the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2015. Dalwhinnie 15-Year-Old Whisky has an immediate impression of peat smoke on the nose but this quickly gives way to honey, malt, almonds and some lavender. Elegant and well balance with buttery, creamy, smooth flow. Fine texture and silky fell. Malt makes a statement before moving into well-developed finish.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old: Hints of honey, spice and hay also come through. In the mouth, firm in body, with a light to medium slightly buttery mouthfeel. Dry, after early biscuit-sweetness. Enormous malt character contrasts with the fruitiness of the grape. Slight toffee notes. The finish is very long, dry and oaky. Very faint peppery notes add spice, softened by very late caramel and lingering warmth.
