Girvan No.4 Apps Review

Girvan No 4 AppsI first tasted the Girvan No. 4 Apps at Whisky Live back in 2014 but during things like that i tend not to take notes, so being invited by Girvan to a Press Trip and tasting at the Girvan distillery I jumped at the chance.

Girvan No. 4 Apps (which actually contains whisky produced in both No.4 Apps and No.5 Apps - they are the names given to the Stills) is a fabulous light fresh fruity dram that is a lovely introduction to whisky for people who haven't had much exposure to it and also great for those who are experienced whisky drinkers as it has enough complexity and flavour to satisfy most palates.

It would also make a really interesting base for some cocktails, probably not enough punch for an old fashioned but a cool summer No.4 Apps and Soda or a No.4 Apps Martini wold go down really well.

Pick up a bottle from specialists like The Whisky Exchange

Thanks again to Girvan for the Official Sample, and Tour experience
