Мonthly Turnout – May 2018

Dear Friends,
Our May Turnout is entirely devoted to the Entomology Series by Liquid Treasures. Each one of these bottles is a limited edition, collectors grade whisky. The labels, as in each one of Liquid Treasures’ releases, are also unique and unusual.
All drams are available in one of our Explorer Packs, which, as always, is a great way to sample the great drams from our Monthly Turnout list.

Nose: Butterscotch, jam tarts with crumbly pastry, a hint of banana.
Palate: Slowly develops hints of baking spices – clove and nutmeg, particularly. Remains filled with sweet caramel and butterscotch notes.
Finish: Lingering sweetness of brown sugar and fresh doughnuts.

Nose: Savory at first with oatcakes and sea salt, before a bounty of nectarine and pear notes give it a kick of sweetness. Malted barley and soft maple earthiness. Toasted teacake, salted butter and some tangy orange.
Palate: Rye bread and quince jam, a touch of flint, caramelized fruit and sandalwood. Brown sugar, a touch of seaweed, drying nutmeg richness.
Finish: Lasting notes of freshly-baked rye bread and sharp marmalade. Green olive, almond and more warming oak.

Nose: Richly smoky – bonfire embers and freshly charred oak. Cider apples and buttery shortbread soon follow.
Palate: Well-charred BBQ pork with a touch of ash. Grilled bananas, dry oak and ground cumin.
Finish: Slightly floral malt, savoury exotic spices and salted caramel.

Nose: Plenty of phenol, freshly cut fennel and a minty note. Cinnamon and star anise.
Palate: Sharper mint, strong but not burning. Pronounced phenol with a grapefruit note with a nicely balanced acidity. Salt and iodine with seaweed. Very oily.
Finish: Long and soft, beautiful. Peat returns only to become stronger as the taste of the whisky fades away.

Nose: Caramelised fruit, honey and a touch of toasted bread, Kelloggs Fruit & Nut cereal, pineapple and grapefruit. It’s also quite green, with aromas of freshly cut grass, moss and a handful of herbs. Chuck in some Bakewell Tarts for good measure, too.
Palate: Peppery oak spice, dark chocolate, juicy orchard fruit. Hoppy with a pleasingly soft mouthfeel lifted by a little fresh chilli prickle. There’s also orchard fruits, cashew nuts, a mineral quality and the impression of menthol.
Finish: Soft and gentle with some sugar-dusted pancakes with a squeeze of lemon and jam of orchard fruits, pepped up with some light chilli.
