As part of the membership pack each member received 2 'mystery drams' to use in conjunction with this.
The whiskies contained within were kept a secret until each had been tasted.
We stared off with Mystery Dram 1 - Light in colour and initially sweet nose. Here's what some of the guys said about it.
Hint of vanilla mixed with lemon... tinge of honey, but it's giving it a sweetness, not heavily scented..
Nose is citrusy - a little white wine-y, but a sweetness as well.
There's a sweetness that reminds me of barley sugar boiled sweets.
Ok dram 1, heather honey, easy to drink sweet ending with a hit of spice.
This whisky was the anCnoc 12 yr old (40%) retailing at around £27. A fantastic value for money Speysider
Richer, lots of runny caramel scent, vanilla, nice kick of spice. I have a feeling I'm going to love this one...
lots going on in this one, but I can't put a name to any of those scents!
Mystery Dram 2 - Nose, summer fruits this time, and christmas pudding.
Dram2 taste. Rich and nutty, with a brown sugar/treacle hint.#MCRWC - @Javidx9
Vanillia from the wood, I do like the sharp spike of ethanol.
This was revealed to the tweeters as being the Whyte & Mackay 13yo blended whisky (40%) retailing at around £20 this is a great everyday blend that has a lot to offer.
