El Vino 16 Year Old Connoisseurs Blend Review

El Vino 16 Year Old Connoisseur's Blend Furthering my month of Blended whisky I was very kindly sent a sample of El Vino 16 Year Old Connoisseur's Blend by Billy Abbott (@cowfish).

This blend is the house blend from the El Vino specialist wine retailers in London where i believe they vat and mature the whisky in their own sherry casks.

I was really impressed with this a cracker of a blend, just don't go buying it all before Billy does.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

The nose on this is really very familiar but reminds me more of a malt that a blend, it doesnt have the dewy grass / grain notes that i normally associate with blends it's quite rich with dried fruits and malt loaf, there's a touch of liquorice and brown bread in there also, very pleasant.

Palate

initially quite watery in nature, not too many flavours jump out here, it's got a touch of fruity sweetness that could be dried fruit like and a little bit of lightly toasted white bread with melted butter.

Finish

a touch of spice and a kiss of dried fruit sweetness
