Sainsburys Taste the Difference 12 Year Old Islay Single Malt
This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series
Day 9 came courtesy of Danny Williamson (@dramstats) and the Dramstats
Danny had decided to pop in this whisky after hearing lots of good things about it, including a great review in the 2013 Whisky Bible and i would have to agree that it's a pretty fantastic dram.
My guess for this was the Big Peat by Douglas Laing but once again i was wrong.
Instantly quite peaty, bbq spare ribs and gentle undertones of cream and fruit
sweetness and peat, not huge amounts of peat smoke but it's there in a bbq form, and sweet creamyness
Sweet and Smoky
