Advent Calendar 2020 7/24

Reviewed by victor

Tasting 24 samples totally blind in December 2020, you can find more here. All notes except the very last few sentences are written before reveal. Disclaimer: These are all very small drams, around 1.5 cl each, so doing a proper tasting is challenging. I'll do my best!

0.6 (old gold)


Clean vanilla and toffee, cinnamon and nuts.


Chocolate, vanilla, spicy.


Cherries, a little wine-y, tannic,tiny hint of smoke/char.

A bit more interesting and a little more bite than a standard-vanilla-offering. We might have over 50% ABV here. Tough, kind of ran out of whisky before assessing properly :( I liked what I had, in any case! Check out my other advent tastings! Guess: 50% ABV, tiny sherry influence, no peat but properly charred casks, around 12 years old. Reveal: Glentauchers (cask 1 or 2 unknown) . Totally unknown to me, but I was spot on on the ABV!
