Scotch Malt Whisky Society of Canada “September 2017 Outturn” – Scotch Whisky News

SMWS Sept 2017

September Outturn delivers an exotic cargo of flavours to taste and explore with seven new marvelous malts!

CASK NO. 48.84  SEIZE THE MOMENT

12 years old; 1st fill barrel; 57.7%; Juicy, oak & vanilla

A bouquet of flowers and a bottle of Gewürztraminer to start. After an espresso and crumpets with strawberry jam, enjoy a Mai Tai in a conservatory.

CASK NO. 54.45  DRUNKEN CHERRY COCONUT ICE CREAM

9 years old; 1st fill barrel; 58.9%; Juicy, oak & vanilla

Herbal apple spritz cocktail and grapes covered in white chocolate were followed by a tropical fruit salad with a creamy coconut almond dip. With a drop of water we sat under palm trees eating rum soaked cherry coconut ice cream.

CASK NO. 37.85  EASTERN PROMISE

14 years old; refill hogshead; 56.8%; Spicy & sweet

The aromas were like walking through a Thai street food market when eventually we tried the barbecued spice-rubbed chicken with a kumquat-lemongrass dressing. After some water we moved on to shrimp and scallion rolls dipped in a soy and oyster sauce.

CASK NO. 64.81  FLAMBÉ CREPE SUZETTE

13 years old; 1st fill barrel; 62.5%; Spicy & sweet

A fragrant, heady, sultry summer’s day, and we enjoyed the moment with lavender honey ice cream and a caramel cinnamon latte. Diluted, we imagined a delicate ornament made out of spun sugar, and we finished with a spiced blood orange Champagne punch.

CASK NO. 35.168  ESSENCE OF BFG

15 years old; virgin oak butt, heavy toast/medium char; 60.4%; Deep, rich & dried fruits

The nose has abundant toffee, Madeira, tobacco, polished wood and essence of BFG (black forest gâteau) – leather, liquorice, orange peel and candy floss later. The chewy palate delivers maple candies, honeycomb toffee, Jaffa cake, Jamaican ginger cake, syrupy cherries and pear.

CASK NO. 42.29  MARVELOUS MARITIME MARGARITAS

9 years old; refill barrel; 57.3%; Oily & coastal

Next to the seaside smokehouse and old fishermen’s nets was an odd place to sip margaritas whilst snacking on sweet pickled herring, smoked bacon with brown sauce and oysters with balsamic vinegar to be followed later by our dessert of salted caramel ice cream with lime sauce.

CASK NO. 3.295  BOUQUETS AND SPADES

20 years old; refill hogshead; 54.6%; Lightly peated

Perfumed pink roses, heather and violets balanced with a bonfire, toasted marshmallows and chocolate on Belgian waffles. Then bacon with maple syrup and peaches with brown sugar.
