Thanks to Tim W. for pouring me this sample.

So we start ramping up. Because for this year’s Advent Calendar, put together by my wife, each one is supposed to be stronger than the last. Luckily I have a working liver.

Ha! Take that non-liver people!

So we’re onto Advent Day #16. Let’s see how this tastes, shall we?

Region: Island

Date Distilled: July 2002

Age: 12-years-old

Cask Type: Refill barrel

Outturn: 210 bottles

Abv: 57.9%

Colour: 7.5Y 9/6

Nose: Bready, earthy, pear, brine

Pro-tip when reading my reviews: The more words that end in Y that don’t need to I use, the less focused the flavour is.

Ha! Takes that inanimate objects I consume!

So there’s some cereal/yeast, some earth, mostly pear and brine. Looking back I should have noted the brine and figured my shit out better, but here we are. It came out last.
