Onward and upwards! That is at least my hope as I open the 5th sample for Yapi’s high end blind tasting. #5 is fairly pale in colour while #5bis is darker. Bourbon and sherry matured whiskies from the same distillery perhaps? Edit: the whiskies have been revealed to be Littlemill from 1990 (Eiling Lim) and 1989 (Thosop) respectively.
Looking at the paler colour of the third instalment in this blind tasting we’re taking quite a detour from the last samples. No sherry here! Opening the bottle, do I detect a whiff of peat? Let’s see what we can say about this one. edit: the whisky has been revealed to be a Caol Ila 30yo by Thosop.
