Meet #80 | 22/10/16 | Hosted by Jamie
A peaty evening this time around, comparing a standard Talisker 10yo to a new airport bottling, then blowing them both away (maybe?) with a cask strength Lagavulin 7yo.
Old (stormy) lemons, fusty, dusty, old cellar dust, mouthwash.
Relatively bland, smell of a Thai restaurant, storm slurry, aniseed, colour is deceptive, vhumph, Christmassy mulled wine, red wine.

Too short to finish, aspartame.
Empty and relatively bland, but has a Christmassy richness. Summed up as a squirrel (elusive, woody and fluffy).
