Whisky Review – Boxes Blend

Boxes blend.
NAS.
40.9%

£55.95 from Master of Malt

Colour. Gold.

Nose.

Light and spicy with some peat smoke hanging around. Toffied Bananas.

Palate.

Creamy, some nice oils to the mouthfeel, easy, fruity development moving onto grass and hay.

Finish.

Short-medium and dry. Very dry hay/straw. With some warming oak spice.

Adding water.

Added a tiny drop. Nose opens a little providing more fruit variation. A definitely more creamy nose with toffee apples overriding the previous banana notes. Peat smoke subsides with that drop of water. Palate is less oily and feels more integrated with less definition in the development. Finish is drier and more grassy. Personally would I add water. No. I prefer the layered oily nature of the undiluted dram.

Thanks to MoM – Review sample provided by Master of Malt
