Connas Stunnas Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks Parcel 6

The Single Malts of Scotland releases just keep coming folks! Those relentless folks at Elixir have yet another “Parcel” of reserve casks for us…

And here’s what treats lie ahead!

SMWOS P6 BA


Single Malts of Scotland Reserve Casks Parcel 6


Blair Athol 10 Years Old


Single Cask


48%


£54.95


Colour

Gold


Nose

Medium pronunciation with Peanut butter mingling nicely with coconut and vanilla custard…


Palate

Clings softly with nice warmth on the tongue, a little linier flavour-wise but the “usual suspects” from bourbon casks are all in attendance. Vanilla with light spices and soft notes of iced pastries. Persistence will bring subtle mango, melon and heather.


Finish

Medium length, with “maturation” spices giving way to those lighter fruity notes…

SMWOS GLENCAD P6


Glencadam 10 Year Old


5 Bourbon Casks

Single Cask


48%


£52


Colour

Pale Gold



Nose

Fruit forward with tropical mango and grapefruit. Then a more Raspberry in vanilla cream inflection and a good old “foam Banana” hit!



Palate

Light cling with plenty of flavour building from the fruity nose to introduce more in the way of sweet spice, dustings of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and ginger wrap those fruits up nicely into a warm package.


Finish

Short to medium length with reminders of cream and spice.


Overveiw


Well, this is getting a little monotonous now.


When are these people going to give me something to whinge about!


Once again, we have solid, uncomplicated, great value whisky from the team at Elixir. And long may it continue!


Now, a this point I usually say “Go and try some, prove me wrong!” (or words to that effect).


Today I can say..


If you’re going to Yorkshire Whisky Festival on Saturday, TRY SOME! PROVE ME WRONG!


Cheers For popping in Loungers!


See you soon.
