Dram Review: Liquor Library and La Maison du Whisky Sullivans Cove 12 Years Old

[58.0%・12 Years Old・Bottled in 2018・Liquor Library and La Maison du Whisky Bottling・Cask No. TD0114・Single Cask Release of 268 Bottles]

Nose:

Concentrated grape juice and crystallised raisin sugar, the exotic musk marries the buttery and syrupy goodness.

Palate & Finish:

Incredible burst of pleasurable wine-y sweetness gelling with rich toffee and sticky honey, as a buttery chewiness moves in. Peanut brittle and Vienna almonds coated with a concentrated muscat grape nectar.

Finishes nutty and dry, a herbal hint much like a lip bite, long and satisfying.

Thoughts:

Like a perfect marriage between wholesome honey and late harvest Riesling.

Cask well picked as an independent bottling.

Cheers Jose for helping me acquire the bottle, it’s much appreciated.
