Bottle share at Chriso’s for Kenny’s 20K. Thanks! As ’Hawkshead Brodie’s Prime Reserve 2012’. Brewed in 2011 at 8.5%. Black with a small foamy tan head. Aroma is minty, buttery whisky, booze. Body is smooth, rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is tangy whisky up front, minty - almost pine, alcohol. Maybe doesn’t quite have the depth you’d hope for in the style, but good nevertheless.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
10.2012 bottle bottle drank 01.2013. Very dark brown almost black but you can see the red tint in the corners with creamy, sticky, lacy, lasting, but thick brown head. Smells of deep malt, burnt and roasty that comes off as heavy as an imperial stout, cherry, some liquorish but much less than fresh XXXBP, less alcohol present too with sweet blueberries and no vanilla and whiskey. Smooth oily body. Tastes thin with roast, coffee dark malt and dark chocolate with a bit of whisky and wood on the finish. Not so boozy as its young version. S9.L5.P4.T8.O16. 12.2010 bottle drank 01.2013. Looks about same with a tint of red and a creamy tan lasting thick head. The smell fills with vanilla and deep alcohol with a cherry sweetness and less roast than before. May of the flavours have combined together. Palate is smooth and silky. Less sweet taste than before with high whisky notes. Mellowed out from its former sharpness. S9.L5.P5.T10.O18

Spicy Woody bottle nose. Mmmm. Dark dark brown almost to black. Medium big & beaming but loose magnolia head. Still a fair amount of fizz but very deep and mouth covering earthy. Complex but could do with being more tightly knit together.

Cask at Bat. Black with tan head. Atoma has something sharp and tangy, could be mildly infected, fruity, berries, blackcurrant. Taste of tangy berries and licorice, little woody whisky. Tad thin but smooth. Quite odd bit whatever’s going on with it seems to work. Decent.

Cask in the bat. Dark dark with brown small head. Lots of medicinal whisky on the nose. Woody, caramels, malts. Very soft carbonation. Bit too much barrel for me, but good
