I’ve stated before how Blue Label is my favorite whisky; but I was waiting for a special occasion to procure a bottle of my own. Well, my wife surprised me with one for Christmas. Here are my official tasting notes on this anticipated bottle.
My smell may be off today. Hints of flower and lemon?
Goes down so smooth. I taste caramel. It’s almost buttery in it’s richness. Almost sweet.
A slight burn in the back of the throat. In the burn I taste hints of cinnamon and some of the wood. It warms the center and sides of your tongue but no actual burn there, just a pleasant warmth. On my tongue I feel like I’m getting slight floral and lemon hints, but I may be imagining it.
This is great. This is still my favorite whisky, hands-down. Above even my favorite bourbons and single malts.
