This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Glenallachie, bottled by SMWS after 7 years of aging in an ex-bourbon barrel. This bottling, "Kissing a Rainbow" is bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Let's see how it is.
Sweet, buttery, faint parchment paper. Honey, pepper, plum and faint must.
Medium mouth feel but hot. Plums, peaches, pears, and ethanol. Vanilla, faint parchment, Dole fruit syrup, and ethanol. It's a bit hot for comfort.
Long, rich and hot. Cocoa, rich plum, vanilla bean and ethanol.
This was really nice, but the ethanol was undeniable and punishing. It can't be helped, the sheer heat keeps this from excelling.
