My Thanksgiving dram. I was planning on toasting in my Thanksgiving dinner with a special single malt but my brother brought a bottle of this KIRKLAND 27 YEAR OLD Blended Scotch Whisky to the party for my family to share and sip on. Produced and bottled by Alexander Murray, Aberdeen Scotland, I was intrigued. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with it overall. The nose had notes of apples, oranges and toasty oak. The palate matched the aroma with fruity notes of marmalade and vanilla. Not too sweet. Nicely balanced, clean, complex sip. Bottled at only 40% ABV, I sipped it neat. I don’t recommend adding much water. (If any at all). It may have been more flavorful if produced at 43% or 46%, but it still tasted great for a blend (and for the incredible price) A full-bodied mouth feel with an elegant medium to long finish. Perhaps it was the additional years of maturation in Bourbon casks that added just the amount of flavor and complexity. Yes, it is a blend. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Reminded me a bit of Johnie Walker Blue but at a far more affordable price. I have my brother to THANK for introducing this Scotch to me. Just another thing to be thankful for! Does anyone have any idea which distillers contributed to this unique blend? What was in your glass this Thanksgiving?
