After yesterday’s lovely ex-bourbon matured dram, we are now back on the continent. Heavy sherry, lots of oak and high ABV. A bomb if there ever was one.
This is the end. Of the blind tasting. For 7 weeks Yapi has shown us the different ways in which whisky can evolve. Now it comes down to the last two samples (there’s actually one more, but we don’t talk about that one. Ever! Well, maybe next week). Let’s see if there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, shall we?
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.
