Master of Malt's Brown Drink (Batch 3)

Brown Drink 3 Bottling Note

This is the third edition of our very popular Brown Drink! But just what is this charmingly named concoction? Well sit a moment dear friends, and we shall tell you…

Some time ago we began turning full-sized bottles of whisky into 3cl samples. This meant that whisky lovers could try all kinds of malts and other fine spirits without having to shell out on the whole bottle first (to literally try before buying). A bottle of whisky is 70cl, so we can make 23 little 3cl drams and there’s a little extra left over. The question is: what do we do with what was left over? We can't feed it to the Colobus monkeys; that would be cruel! So, we decided to pour all the surplus yumminess into one almighty carboy, and tried it only to find, astonishingly, it was actually really rather good. The first batch of "Brown Drink" sold out pretty quickly, then we had batch 2 and now we present to you batch 3!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Floral with Opal Fruit (I mean Starburst of course) sweets with intense notes of Campari followed by toffee, butter fudge and shortbread, beneath this there is green apple and gooseberry providing a very satisfying aroma.

Palate: A soft rounded body with further notes of toffee and bars of milk chocolate. Then comes a wave of malt, sweet grist and angelica root.

Finish: Soft butter fudge leading to lychees and green grapes. The finishes concludes with subtle spice and an aromatic herbaceousness.

Overall: For a drink that shouldn't really work, this really does. In Brown Drink tradition it is insane and delicious in equal parts.

Master of Malt's Brown Drink (Batch 3) Reviews


Wouldn't spend money for it, but as a sample in the advent calendar it was quite interesting. Nothing I'd recommend to taste after an Islay single malt though...
