Review #810 (2019)

This is a single cask from Fary Lochan Distillery, and only 388 bottles were made. Spicy oak and some white fruits in the smell. Some fresh plums as well. Almost reminds me of a mix of Bourbon and Rye whisky.

Again, very spicy in the taste, full of apples and with some red berries underneath. Waves of vanilla comes rushing in. Oak and oak spices dominates in the finish, but with a touch of grassy notes and white fruits.

If you like virgin cask maturation, you can easily give this a try. Would go great with a cigar! With that said, it’s a fine dram, but nothing spectacular. I will give this 83/100 (21/20/21/21).
