Glenisla 36 Year Old Single Cask by Signatory (Cask 19603)
Tasting Note by Our Malt Master
This is a extremely rare experimental peated malt by the more know distillery Glenkeith (although it is quite underrated). Created solely for blending purpose originally, this cask had slip out of their finger and bottled by Signatory for us to enjoy. Try it while it is available, this is a very had malt to find.
Nose: Apple juice overwhelm at first. It smell like the cough medicine you get from the doctor (if you know what I mean). Some fire wood scent came out from time to time. With a splash of water, it bring out more apple, pear, mirabelle, mint, hay straw, yogurt and cream soda favour. Very juicy and appetising.
Palate: This is a dram that you need time to decipher. Lemon, fermented malt, something like a light beer, cedar wood, paperboard and some goat milk cheese (did I just say I tasted cheese in a whisky...). This is a very very strange dram but a very fun one.
Finish: Very short for a 36 year old whisky. Yogurt, cedar and that weird cheese note last till the end. If you are bored with your go-to whisky, try this one out, I guarantee you have never ever taste something even remotely similar before.
