On Saturday 8th April I finally sat down with this dram. And no dry train dramas of my trip down to Newcastle…and the likelihood of an escort from the train by the BTP… just me and this sample (see my Newcastle Festival blog for the story.)
I have had this since last year so thought I really should open it and see what was inside the bottle.
This was a release from That Boutique-y Whisky Company and it is the Carsebridge 52 year old, Batch 1 and is a Single Grain Scotch Whisky.
The nose is fruity. Along with that there is vanilla and sweet fudge. Grain comes through on the nose and a touch of fleeting treacle. I got a little Caramac bar and maybe a little waft of advocaat.
Smooth but full on the palate. Caramel and some vanilla again. A gentle warmth but something else is there. Something I’m finding it hard to describe… with a nice finish which continues to give you that sweetness.
Please note these are my thoughts (rightly to wrongly) of the whisky sampled – Sarah
