Riverflow (Morrison & Mackay)
i've had a few drams from Independent Bottle Morrison & Mackay in the past, many of which I haven't reviewed as they were sampled at festivals and events, so it's about time i spent more time drinking and reviewing them.
This is Riverflow, a sister product to The Big Strand, and is a single malt from the Speyside region, I've certainly heard some rumours at to exactly which distillery this is but I won't say what they are.
It is however a combination of first fill and refill ex-bourbon barrels giving this a really tasty profile filled with soft vanilla, light galaxy chocolate, tangy orange peel and almond notes, and chocolate sprinkles.
This is seriously good dram, and one I would highly recommend you seek out and try.
Available to buy from Specialists like Master of Malt.
Soft gentle vanilla essence, light galaxy chocolate notes, tangy orange peel and notes of orange pith, quite a lot of almond paste, cherry bakewells and chocolate sprinkles.
Vanilla and creme brûlée, chocolate sprinkles, vermicelli, almond paste, tangy orange peel and hints of wood spice.
Tang of wood spice, vanilla, creme brûlée
