Clontarf Classic Blend
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 after my mix up of days on here whoops was day 9 with Gal (@Galg) with the really unusual Irish Whiskey Clontarf Classic Blend.
My stupid guess for this was a Cutty Sark 18,whoops.
Light and very fresh with fresh fruit salad, vanilla and light cereal notes with touches of lovely pine fresh needles.
