McNeillR (1329) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Thick, dark brown and a greasy lean. Murkyish. Big up smooshed raspberry, dark choc nose. Decent grind of fruit throughout, dank bit of age but rich and smooth clean rich berry kick throughout. Finishes, slowly berry marshmallow and rich juciy sweetness. Smooth without being overly rich. Whisky has smoothed out. Tremendous.

Bottle, Flu Jab Tasting

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours dark brown with no head. Aromas of red fruit, booze, almonds, rhubarb, fruit cake, I could get lost in this for a while. Taste is sweet, sherry, boozy, nutty, more red fruits. Thin body, oily texture. Lovely stuff, cheers to Callum!

TheCametron (1882) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle at Zly Casy with Ben and Pete. Ben had just come in to some money and was feeling a bit flush. Cheers Ben. This bottle had clearly been here a while. Still tasted good though. Pours Dark Brown with a small cream head. Aroma is very intriguing. Funky raspberry and wood. Quite unusual. Fruity whisky and a quite pronounced raspberry vibe. Still crazy after all these years.

maneliquor (3285) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle from the cellar shared at the meatball tasting. Not much carbonation here.... Nose is sweet raspberries and mild tarty cherries with a mild peatiness to it. Rather sweet and dessert like. Taste is damp wood and bright red berries with heavy tart, mild grass and light peat. Cherry tartiness and raspberry sweetness are the focus for sure. A slightly thin mouth feel but it works well. Solid
