It’s Micil time!
They’ve also recently laid down their own distillate for the quiet slumber in casks to turn into whiskey.
In the meantime a pair of sourced – Great Norther Distillery – offerings came my way for appraisal.
Micil Inverin, Blend, 46%
A gentle kiss of turf greets the nose.
Clean, clear & fresh palate with more smokey notes appearing.
Gorgeously drying turf on the rear with a spicy lip smacking finish.
Sweet, spicey & smokey.
Micil Earl’s Island, Single Pot Still, 46%
A gentle even shy nose with hints of juicy depth.
Smooth silky palate.
A touch of drying on the rear with subtle sweetness & an engaging spicy kick.
Without a doubt Inverin is my whiskey of choice here.
That warm embracing hug of turf paired with juicy fruitiness is a winner on my palate.
Roll on Micil!
