Tasting Notes: Two 200ml size bottles of exquiste whisky to enjoy this dreary January! For me, I"ve been enjoying all the walkies I get as my humans are around more thanks to the nasty Pandemic. After my walks, I enjoy a nice wee dram. This month, I'm trying two new ones from Islay. Machir Bay is a lovely expression from Islay's farm distillery. Matured in ex-bourbon barrels and Oloroso Sherry butts, resulting in a well-balanced flavour profile, with highlights of vanilla biscuits, light fruit and wafts of warm peat smoke. In Sanaig’s case, it’s an extra 10 months of aging in oloroso sherry casks, with the remainder being ex-bourbon. For younger whiskies they are excellent, and come in this handy two pack to try both!
