Bluff
clear, platinum
grassy, salty, bay breeze
medium bodied with complex notes
pepper, light tar, salty,
light heat, coating, contemplative
seems light at first then packs a punch of salt and pepper at the back. A great reminder of how much I enjoy whisky from Glen Scotia.

Light green
Green apples
Salty and gets saltier if you don’t drink more – nice
Remarkably this bottle was from the same cask, 26 bottles apart in the bottling run, from the bottle tasted by the KOTQ at the 10Q2 tasting.

My head cold didn’t permit me to idenify
Again, perhaps because of the cold – salt and pepper with a hint of cream
Rather smooth, very enjoyable
Again, my radar was off, I fell into the groupthink on The Macallan 25 Fine Oak, but Brother Bluff rose to the occasion to identify this as Glen Scotia
