  1. Interesting Brian, a few lovely traits such as the cashews which I didn’t get the pleasure of. I wonder if there would be differences, if any at all when a dram is poured straight of the bat from a 700ml bottle compared to the 180ml bottle? Or is it simply just nature: different people, different palate, different perceptions, and different surroundings? Ah- the pleasures of being able to experience different interpretations….lovely!

    • Well I didn’t pick up cashews at first Clint, only on the weekend when I had a few drams and wrote up the notes. But your right, there are many factors in play.
