A mystery malt today I tried a good while back. Here in the UK I believe that Majestic (the wine shop) have this as an exclusive so its not super available but not too expensive.
Stronachie 10 43%
Colour: Light Gold
Nose: Sweet, apple, malt, vanilla, spice. Classic fresh Bourbon matured Speyside, if a little boring for it.
Taste: Again, classic 1st Fill Bourbon matured Speyside. Vanilla, spice, baked apple, some citrus, a little burnt pastry, spice, nutty. Good mouthfeel for 43%.
Finish: Medium length. Nutty oak, some bitter oak char.
Benrinnes reputably. Pretty decent actually, although I probably wouldn’t peg it as a Benrinnes blind.
Thanks for reading!
