Remarkable Regional Malt series called Timorous Beastie. This expression is a blend of Highland malts. Whiskies from Dalmore, Glen Garioch, Glengoyne and others make up this wonderful whisky.
Bottled at 46.8% ABV.
Nose: Honey, dried fruit, salty sea breeze, floral.
Palate: Crisp apple, more dried fruit, fruity saltwater taffy, heather notes.
Finish: Long, spicy, sweet and savoury.
Tyrconnell 15-Year-Old Madeira Cask
Tyrconnell 15-Year-Old is a double-distilled single malt whisky finished in Madeira casks. Madeira is a fortified wine made on the Portuguese islands of Madeira, off the coast of Africa. The Madeira cask finish gives this whisky subtle notes of tropical fruit, toasted hazelnut and some raisiny notes on the finish.
Here’s my take!
Nose: Tropical fruit, toast, nuts and honey.
Palate: More fruit, honey, toasted malt, coffee.
Finish: Medium in length, sweet honey, raisins.
