The Dramble's tasting notes for SMWS G10.13 Warm butter on banana bread
Bottle Name: 

G10.13 Warm butter on banana bread

ABV: 55.7%
Distillery: Strathclyde
Bottler: Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Region: Lowlands

Single grain time with a 29 year old Strathclyde drawn from a 2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel. Old & Dignified profile.

Nose: An afternoon in the Bake Off tent. Buttered toast, pastries, croissants and freshly baked turnovers are joined by some homemade fizzy lemonade and hazelnut biscuits. Water adds some dusty aromas and a touch of varnish and glue.

Taste: Fresh wood and biscuits. Cut wood planks, balsa and resin merge nicely with gingernut biscuits and cinnamon spicing. The addition of water enhances the nuttiness – hazelnuts and adds vanilla, varnish and glue.

Finish: Super long, quite woody and with vanilla and ginger.

A very straight-forward, but no less tasty for it Strathclyde. Strongly woody, but offering good balance between bakery notes and flavours and cask spicing.

Score: 85/100
