Campfire Whiskey | 46.0% | USA
Meet #76 | 11/06/16 | Hosted by Russell
Russell took host of his 'unusual' night - three whiskies from casks you might not expect for the distillery, from Scotland to the good ol' US of A.
Nosey. Just 'testing' it. Cheesey bananas with wood varnish and something Fran calls Grolla which I think is Grappa. Mixed peel, oranges, grapefruit, celery and olive oil. Jamie was unconvinced about whether it was minty, but if it was minty it was minty like a humbug.
Oily. Lovely oranges, christmas cake, solero and syrup and delicious fizzy cola cubes and banana milk. But with a dental theme - toothpaste steradent car air freshener pine lime. Then a dark twist with memories of sour mash, Fran's youth and burnt pepper.

The bottle design went down well on the finish. It's like waking up to some horrific morning after a party - a salty Ginster's pasty, charcoal, post vomit mouthwash, Andrew's salts, flat coke and something undefinable mushy and unpleasant. Ooh but whats' this - some lime pickle and a cherry lollipop to save the day.
Silky. A nice JD.
