Colour

Pineapple and vanilla ice-cream, fresh doughnuts and rhubarb and custard sweets.

Palate

Finish

Meduim verging on long with creamy nuttiness allowing the occasional visit from the all spice.

Teaninich 11 Years Old

Five Hogsheads

48%

£59.95

Colour

Pale Gold

Nose

Clotted cream and French patisseries, breaking into coconut and grape and melon with a thick vanilla custard.

Palate

Mouthcoating richness well paired with the nose. The luxurious creaminess allows forth a sharper sweetness from candied lemon and then a waive of a more tropical nature in mango, grapefruit, and pineapple gives way to cinnamon ginger and buttery pastry.

Finish

Medium to long length of finish  with the warm sweet spiciness declining to a rich sour cream fade.

Mannochmore 11 Years Old

Seven Hogsheads

48%

£57.95

Colour

Pale Gold

Nose

IPA with a grapefruit edge, cold raspberry jelly (the type you get in a Trifle), and fresh lemon zest in oil being flicked from a sprig of lavender onto a small cup of camomile tea.

Palate

Thick lemon honey with specks of sharp apple with stewed blackcurrant jam coats the whole of the tongue. Good old pear drops with a sprinkling of lemon sherbet, toasted fennel seeds and a touch of retro vanilla icing.

Finish

Medium to long once more, light sweet spice hum dissipating into a juicy grapefruit fade.

Overveiw

At the risk of repeating myself….

The folks at elixir are undeniably excellent at not only putting dependable whiskies into a bottle but pitching the resulting liquid to the public. All three are utterly reflective of solid expressions of distillery style, and value.

Tough to argue with them, really!

Well done team, now you’ll be getting a flood of people ordering bottles in order to prove me wrong. I’ve been telling everyone not to trust me for long enough!

Cheers For popping in Loungers!

See you soon.
