Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A bonfire on a beach, with hints of wet pebbles, soft fruit and sea spray. Tarry and dry, slightly grassy.

Palate: Driftwood! Dry oak, hints of allspice and tar. Very subtle hints of smoke, black pepper and linseed oil.

Finish: Oaky, woody finish. Herbal.

User Reviews of the Driftwood 1997 - Wemyss Malts (Bunnahabhain)

Worth a dram...

Caveat: I have a weird and rather unsophisticated palate...so I was rather shocked to find that I agree generally with the MoM tasting notes. On the nose, my first impression is smoking, wet wood mixed with brine. Unfortunately, the nose then turns to cough drops briefly...then changes to subdued leather. The taste is very "maritime" - oil, tar, brine and (for me) smoke, wood, and black pepper predominate. I'm no expert, but this is one of the most pungent scotches I've had - I can smell it from a good distance - and also the most spicy. By "spicy" I mean as in heat - like pepper - not allspice. In fact, in the finish, I taste jalapeño peppers...might be a good match for fajitas. I found no fruit or sweetness in this one, but that's OK. Driftwood? Maybe burned driftwood, but it's a nice dram for autumn.

Too dry

This whisky is too dry and maybe bit harsh. We won't buy a bottle.
