Sweetdram Blend #1 Scotch Whisky 70cl 43% ABV
Regular price £36.00
Our friends over at Sweetdram have gone into the blending business and produced a stunner; a unique and complex dram designed for whisky novices, connoisseurs, and everyone else in between.
Although this bottle marks a slight deviation from their other botanical spirits, the skills required to develop it are rooted in the same basic principles. It’s ultimately about building flavour and aroma, and creating a new, exciting experience for the drinker – but whisky requires a deft, more subtle hand.
First, the foundation: North British single grain whisky aged in virgin oak, the reliable, woody backbone on which to build. Then sherried Invergordon for a bit of punch and depth and peated Ardmore for body, length, and a wispy touch of sweet billowy smoke. Vatted as one and finished in barrels seasoned with Tawny port from Douro, Portugal, to pull the individual components together.
The result is a modern dram that sits somewhere between Scotch and a round, complex bourbon. A nice, clean, easy drinker with nuance, charm, and gusto. Simply sip and savour – with a dash of water to release the oils and esters – or enjoy as a long drink with dry ginger ale.
