Tasting Notes

Laphroaig Quarter Cask:
Nose: Burning embers of peat. Oily and buttery with toffee, nuttiness, hickory, bicarbonate of soda before final hints of coconut and banana aromas.
Palate: Deep, complex and smoky yet still manages to suprise the palate with a gentle sweetness.
Finish: Long. Dries appropriately with a nice helping of smoke and spice.

Old Hobart Overeem Sherry Cask Matured:
Nose: Big on the nose with soft caramel, vanilla, smoky honey, toffee, dry seeds, roasted coffee and a rich rounded oak sensation.
Palate: Very soft and round, yet big and full flavoured, with caramel, vanilla, cocoa and roasted honey and a strong and rare texture and exceptional complexity.

Arran Sauternes Cask Finish:
Nose: Initially honey but then opens up to apricots, bananas and pears. With time a floral elegance presents itself.
Palate: Sweet but cut with warm spice. Lemon zest announces itself with the addition of water and a slight saltiness plays with the sweet character.
Finish: Seville orange and a hint of honey in a crisp finish.

Penderyn Madeira Finish:
At a generous 46% ABV, it has a classic freshness with aromas of cream toffee, rich fruit and raisins. The palate is crisp and finely rounded, with the sweetness to balance an appetising dryness. Notes of tropical fruit, raisins and vanilla persist in the finish.

Glen Garioch Virgin Oak:
Nose: Oat cereal with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Pine breeze and a vanilla hum.
Palate: A big, delicious chocolate burst, with chewy toffees and sugar coated sweeties. This is followed by oak that you knew was coming, but it's surprisingly subtle. Spices and cloves too feature too.
Finish: Vanilla reappears to calm down the oak spices for a nice, long finish.

It's a shame I didn't get the Hibiki, Yamazaki and Togouchi whiskies as these were the ones I was looking forward to trying the most. I've sampled a few of the Nikka whiskies already and they were replaced with these instead. A little disappointing, but still looking forward to trying some of the others. Packing of this item was very strange though. All the bottles were taken out of the packaging and arrived individually bubble wrapped. Box was a little excessive for the contents.
