  • Brand: Master of Malt
  • ABV: 40%

Nose: Wow!. This was something I totally was not expecting. : sweet fruit , heather-honey with very interesting touches of anise and smoke. Baby vomit notes which then goes away to allow more smoke and heather.

Palate: Dried Fruit, Wood spices galore all enveloped by smoke, finishing on some chili notes and pepper.

Finish: Long, Woody with a bitter touch to it, some now-gone fires on the backdrop. Dry smoke, no too imposing.

All in all a very enjoyable dram. A great nose and body. Kodus for Master of Malt for the great combination of malts from both distilleries, to create a unique harmonious profile. One caveat is the 40% ABV . Cant think how great this one could be had it been bottled at 48%.

Baby-vomit notes... this gets my vote for the most "interesting" nose note I've ever seen in a review!

My children are too old for me to fully remember what their early puke smelled like but I'm guessing you mean there's a sweet warm milky smell to it?

There's nothing quite like the gentle waft of baby vomit when you nose a whisky ;)
