Glenglassaugh Torfa, Single Malt, 50%

Torfa.

Richly Peated, Non Chill Filtered & Natural Colour.

Torfa c/othewhiskeynut

What’s not to like?

Nice clean briny smoke.

Slightly subdued on the palate.

Finishes with a flourish.

That 50% ABV adds to the experience.

A lovely & lively wee dram!

Laughfrog Highland Single Malt, 40%

I couldn’t resist the humour of this Laughfrog Highland Malt Scotch.

The mispronunciations of Laphroaig are legendary – why not turn it into a marketing opportunity?

Pity Select Drams bottled it with Highland Malt – perhaps too close to the bone for Islay?

Don’t croak it! c/othewhiskeynut

Anyway – it made my glass.

The first thing I noticed – or rather didn’t – was a rich phenolic peat smoke. A more muted sweet biscuity malt greeted me instead.

This followed into the palate which developed a full bodied mouthfeel.

A lovely drying gentle spiciness brought up the tail end.

An entertaining easy going malt with a touch of character & perhaps a dash of peat in the background.

Certainly wouldn’t make you croak!
