“Remarkable Regional Malts with a Twist” by Douglas Laing (Review)

Remarkable Regional Malts with a Twist by Douglas Laing (Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Tasting Notes Blog)

For this year’s Burns Night celebrations,
Our little mouse had special plans.
He sent out lots of invitations,
To his pals across the land.

From all o’er Scotland they replied,
That they would love to join the fun.
So on January Twenty-five,
The mouse’s house got overrun.

Big Peat, Rock Island, Scallywag,
All visited their Beastie friend.
The Gauldrons also joined the pack.
So did The Epicurean.

Together these six whisky fellas,
Partied long and partied loud.
They laughed and joked and danced and hollered,
Until the Highland sun came out.

Eye: Thin legs – quickly they slide,
Leaving my glass wet and damp.
A foggy beach is what comes to mind,
When I gaze upon this fine dram.

Nose: The nose is sturdy and somewhat dry,
With floral, fruity and crunchy notes.
A honey sweetness also swings by,
Plus sour lemons and a whiff of smoke.

Palate: There’s Speyside fruits and Lowland flowers,
Islay peat and Highland heather,
C-Town smutt and sea-spray showers –
Six classic flavors merged together.

Finish: The smooth finale goes on for some time,
It’s sweetish and sourish and fresh.
It offers green apples, toffee and lime,
Wrapped in a thin cloud of ash.
