Another miniature from my mixed bag winning auction lot.
I couldn’t resist humming the opening line from the famous Andy Stewart hit song ‘Donald Where’s Yer Troosers?’
‘I’ve just come down from the Isle Of Skye’.
Well some of the whisky in this blend did.
It started off fine – the colour was reassuringly pale.
But the nose was sweet – very sweet – with a dull stale smell. This one was obviously on the turn!
I took a swig.
Pale, watery & dull.
The only sign of life was a residue smokiness from the peat.
Not undrinkable – but not pleasant.
This one had the potential to be a clean fresh easy peater.
I did check the screw cap seal. It was slightly discoloured. A sign – so I’ve been told – the whisky has deteriorated. Seems to hold true in this instance.
Obviously ‘just come down from the Isle Of Skye’ too long ago!
