Tasting Six Isles Pomerol finish

It’s blend time again. This time a finished blends which i find very interesting. Originally Six Isles is a blended scotch from Ian McLeod distillers consisting of  whiskies from each of Scotland’s whisky producing islands of Islay, Jura, Skye, Mull, Orkney and Arran. This wee dram was further matured (finished) in Pomerol casks (from the Pomerol wine Appellation)

Nose : It’s just like entering a sweets shop. Wine gums, gummy bears, marmalade and some wine tannins swimming in that sweet nose of a dram.
Palate : Sweet entry with oak , dried fruit , spicy dark and milk chocolate and chocolate covered nuts. Very good.
Finish : Cocoa beans , marmalade ,chocolate pralines.

Bottom line:

A very enjoyable and well made blend. The nose is something that captured me, offering a lovely sweet, and winey experience, taking me back to my childhood (well, that was quite some time ago,i am getting old!). Lovely well rounded dram, and worth the $$$.

Score: 88/100

Slainte!
