Here are all the delicious details:

Cask no 1.164  Cheshire cat whisky: 27 years old; refill hogshead; 52.1%; $184.99

‘Sweet manna from heaven‘ – toffee, fudge, caramel, Toffifees, vanilla, honey – but more – tea chests, spice racks, aromatic smoke, burnt heather and pencils in a library – we could have smelled it endlessly.  Water opened up the fruit – sherbet, orange zest, peach, strawberry, tinned grapes, sweet sap and light smoke – panellists grinning like Cheshire cats.  The sweet, oaky palate had tablet, fudge and bread dough – by an open fire; but it also had a darker side – woody, earthy, drying, with sticky cassis and treacle.  Water brightened it up – Starbursts, Skittles and spicy Advocaat.  From the distillery always directed by John or George.

Cask No 64.35  Nicey, nicey, sweet ‘n spicy: 21 years old; refill barrel; 55.2%; $160.99

The nose was finely layered – old-fashioned, expensive, floral perfume on top; apple sauce, gooseberry puree and a tin of fruity boiled sweets below that; the olfactory sub-strata inhabited by patent leather and old books.  The taste was sweet and hot – opinions included tom yam soup, mango chutney, HP Sauce, chilli, crystalllised ginger and leather.  The reduced nose added floral pot-pourri, plum chutney, polished sandalwood and Indian food (ginger, paprika, etc.).  The palate improved but the sweet and savoury profile remained steady – toffee, honey, sugar-coated fennel seeds, liquorice and salty lime pickle.  This distillery does not draw water from Loch Dhu!
