Williamson 2010 Strictly Limited (Morrison & Mackay)
From the Morrison & Mackay Strictly Limited range this is a 6 year old from a single sherry butt, but thats where it gets complicated as this is actually a blended malt!
It's something that happens a lot where distillers don't want their casks landing in the hands of independent bottlers and riding on the coat tails of their brand name so they "teaspoon" the casks they are swapping with whisky from another distillery effectively making them Blended malts.
This is Williamson, widely recognised as being teaspooned Laphroaig, and matured in a (probably refill) sherry butt, this is a damn good dram, filled with that sweet soft creamy smoke that Laphroaig brings at a young age along with salty seafood and hints of antiseptic.
This is a brilliant whisky, and one that if you like a bit of smoke you will absolutely love.
available at Master of Malt but be quick as this wont hang around for long.
oh yum, sweet creamy smoky dark treacle toffees, earthy smoked shellfish, a slightly tarte plum, preserved lemons, salty seafood, coal tar soap and a light hint of antiseptic ointment.
creamy treacle toffees, smoked shellfish, wood spices, cottage chimney smoke, coal tar soap, those tangy preserved lemons again, softer than expected
soft creamy, smoky, coal tar, gentle and tangy
