Meet #87 | 22/07/17 | Hosted by National Whisky Fest
We hit the National Whisky Festival at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh, for the first time - it turned out to be a pretty fun day, although are whisky reviews were quite a mixed bag!
Apricots, herbal. Prunes. Minty fresh. Newly varnished piece of furniture. Really caramelly. Quite a sharp smell. Very sweet. Mint and grapefruit. Flumps. Vanilla. Salty, sharp.
Bananas, lots of fruit (cherry maybe?). Spice. Salted caramel popcorn. Oranges. Menthol. Treacly thickness too it. Quite fruity: nectarines and cherries, but in a caramalised way. Apricots as well, but mostly nectarines. Licorice. Marshmallow. Watered-down Grand Marnier. Starmix (Haribo, kids and grown ups love it so). Bit of herbs. Very caramelly, very sweet.

Spicy end. Minty and quite long. Long finish.
Less sure on the 2nd try. Decent.
