The Lost Distillery Gerston Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
|Brand||The Lost Distillery|
Appearance: Pale amber. Aroma: A relatively closed nose; clean and fresh, with traces of linen and herbal fabric freshener. Laura Ashley? After a while a light, spicy prickle emerges, topping a fruity/doughy note: apple dumpling, made with suet and dusted with nutmeg. With a drop of water the paper note advances, joined by warm leatherette and a trace of steam. Taste: Smooth texture, sweet taste and a surprising amount of smoke in the finish - more coal smoke/steam engine than peat smoke. An unusual, antique taste, which holds up well with a drop of water, although the smoky element is reduced. Comment: Interesting and vaguely 'old fashioned', especially without water.
