Tweeddale 12 Year Old
Furthering my month of Blended whisky i had persuaded the guys from the #12dramsofxmas blind tastings to go along with #12blends. The purpose of #12blends is simple, 12 whisky bloggers and twitterers would send the other 11 a sample of a blended whisky marked only with their random number. The point being on a set day between 1st and 12th April that the other 11 would try to guess what the whisky is scoring points for Producer, Expression, Age and ABV with the overall winner being awarded a bottle of Compass Box Asyla kindly donated by the brilliant blended whisky producers Compass Box.
I've let it a few days before starting these reviews just so that i can catch up and also as some i have reviewed before, even though i'm unlikely to remember them.
Next up and day 5 was Jonathon (@dvdbloke) with the Tweeddale 12 year old, a dram i hadn't had before and i'll definitely be picking up soon.
My stupid guess for this was Compass Box Great King Street
gentle tropical notes, i really feel like i know this. lots of pineapple and kiwi fruit with vanilla white chocolate
more of the fruit, pineapple and kiwi with touches of cereal notes
cracking dram easy drinking with cereal and pine needles
