Spotting a new whisky shop in the pretty East Neuk village of Anstruther what else was I to do but go in and buy a few?
The Wee Couper Of Fife stocks a highly varied selection of whiskies and a wide array of whisky paraphernalia – from tartan hip-flasks & quirky miniatures for the tourists – which I bought – to select single malts & single casks for the purists.
One I purchased was the cheekily named & labelled Kilty Pleasure Scotch from Select Drams.
Select Drams have built up a wholesale drinks supply business specialising in ‘miniatures, gifting and specialist bottlings’ – of which Kilty Pleasure is part of a series.
They also do aged statement single malts from renowned distilleries – but this non age statement blend from unknown sources caught my eye – well – it does play up on the stereotypes – and it amused me!
So was it pleasurable?
In a word – yes!
To be honest it’s fairly standard stuff.
A soft, sweet caramelly nose.
A honeyed smooth palate – easy accessible drinking – no jarring notes – yet developing into a decent prickly heat with just a touch of oaky spice.
If you were buying this as a present – or just for the laugh as I was – Kilty Pleasure possesses enough character & style to carry the whole presentation off.
Congratulations to Select Drams for bringing some light hearted fun to the category!
