26 – Cadenhead Strathclyde 25
Rye and digestive biscuits, dried apple, candle wax, butter, exploded caps and some rubber. Dried pineapple, pepper, cloves and loads of creamy goodness to finish.
27 – Cadenhead Glenburgie-Glenlivet 29
Maraschino cherries, stewed fruits, dark chocolate and wood – brilliant stuff. Warm earthy palate; mushroomy, bitter herbs and green almonds… Oh and slight rock melon at the end.
28 – Smith’s Angaston Whisky 2000 Vintage
What an interesting drop. Smells like a cheap cinnamon candle with a slight brandy note with some candy sweetness and maybe proper cola. The palate is like German spice Christmas cookies, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves… Hot spice almost like Red Hots or Big Red gum. Salt and pepper lingers. As an Adelaide boy, I’m well impressed.
