Whisky Review: Whyte & Mackay 22 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky
This was one of the worst things I’ve tried :(
Whyte & Mackay 22 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky / 43% / $100
I picked up this 22 year old blend on a whim I later regret, after having several excellent ones from Cadenhead’s. The Cadenhead’s are lovely, higher proof, and without any kind of sulphur contamination!
But with this Whyte & Mackay, I have a secret trick: seasonal allergies! With most of my sense of smell gone, this has become drinkable.
- Color: e150a
- Nose: sulphur, burnt tires, sherry, sweet berry jam, and fired gunpowder
- Taste: rubbery, sweet; some ethanol, green bark, and unripe cranberries
- Finish: short
Even with my nose stuffed up, this is rough stuff. It’s not too sulphury (it’s a bit), it’s just got dryer-gasket-seal rubber everywhere.
