  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Blair Athol, bottled by SMWS after 8 years of aging in an ex-bourbon barrel. This bottling, "Monkberry Moon Delight" is bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Rich cocoa, vanilla cream, custard and musty tobacco. Sticky toffee cake and cake batter.

  • Taste:

    Apples, pears, honey, vanilla and faint oak. Some heat, to pair with a medium mouth feel. Heat grows with time, as does the sulphur. Pepper.

  • Finish:

    Short, and hot. Apples, pears, vanilla, clove. Very bourbon-y on the finish.

  • Overall:

    Interesting but not super remarkable. It feels young, and the rechar is evident, in a way I don't love.

  • Score:
