We now return you to your regularly scheduled program. Rest assured, more The Last Jedi posts are on the way, but there’s an advent calendar to enjoy.

Day 14 A.D. Rattray: Glen Elgin 21yr
I mean, they say age doesn’t always make a whisky better, but this is a glorious whisky. I haven’t had anything else from Glen Elgin, but wow, what a great first taste. I originally got some gingerbread cookies off this one, but after reading Jonathan Bray’s description, Shortbread Cookie Dough is spot on.

Day 15 Wemyss Malts: Peat Chimney Batch Strength
If they made a peat candy, this is how it would taste. A nice mixture of peat and sweetness. That said… now I want some peat candy. Is that a thing? Can it be? Please?

Day 16 The Lost Distillery: Lossit Classic
Speaking of peat. This is not blended to represent a typical Islay Malt, but combines elements to work out a smokey, sweet and earthy rendition of what this distillery may have produced back in the day. How they got a smokey milk chocolate dram in my glass, I don’t know. But I’ll have another please.

Day 17 Samaroli: MacDuff Sherry 19yr
This one is an oily treat. The nose in this one keep unfolding, and won’t stop. I get sulphur and anise at first, but that opens up to dried apricots with come through heavily in the palate. I may nee more time with this. I’ll get back to you later. All I know, it’s delicious.

As always, be sure to follow along both on my Instagram feed and stories, as well as Jonathan Bray over at SingleMalting to compare our notes. And take a look at the first 13 days here.

Side Note: Not sure why my embedded Instagram posts aren’t showing up anymore. But check out the new post here.
