A 2-day castle adventure ends up with a 5-whisky tasting session, ranging from a couple of standard bottles to a 'Marmite' of a rye number, finishing with a 35yo An Cnoc!
This whisky was sampled on two consecutive nights by two separate groups. This review is merged from both, see the comments section for below for thoughts on the group differences.
Wow, tastes old in that metallic way, chili, dry, astringent, eating a BBQ after it'd cooled down, sour grapes, feat. Burnt Biscuits, whisky, bitter (digusting, but in a good way), resinous, a little vinegar. Aniseed, too sweet, tastes like its finished.
