Wormtub 10 Batch 4

Back with a fourth batch, and thank goodness – it's the tremendous Wormtub 10 Year Old! Weighing in at 56.9% ABV, this single malt hails from the same undisclosed Speyside distillery as previous batches, a distillery that is known for using a worm tub condenser... that little nugget of information ought to be enough for a few among you to work out which one we're on about. The whisky was reracked into first-fill sherry casks during its 10-year maturation before being bottled at cask strength, without chill filtration or added colour. Yep, that glorious hue is all from time in the cask.

Worm tub condensers are a classic bit of distilling equipment made up of long copper coiled tubes housed in cold water in a large vat. These days, many have been replaced by more efficient shell and tube condensers, which is a shame, because (as this splendid expression so expertly demonstrates) worm tubs can create distinctive, heavy, robust flavours that are prized by distillers and whisky enthusiasts alike.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Dense charred fruitcake, flamed orange peel, and fragrant cassia are joined by hearty dustings of cocoa and baking spice, with earthy forest floor notes riding throughout.

Palate Meaty malt brings notes of honeyed biltong, with oily walnuts and aged marmalade in tow. Sweet sherried fruits and tangy cranberries support trickles of rich salted caramel.

Finish A superbly long, rich finish, with dense, oily malt, and sweet candied fruit lingering for an age.

Reviews for Wormtub 10 Year Old - Batch 4
it's a wonderful cask strength scotch, no harshness at all, and the increased alcohol only serves to enhance the expected fruit flavours. I'll definately buy it again

I’m usually a peat flavoured whisky drinker.
Bought this and really enjoyed it.
I put a dash of water in all my whiskies and it worked a treat with this one. Bottle nearly finished so buying same again😋

Rich and hearty
Great richness, enormously deep nose and full of sherry, sweet oak and spices... quite seasonal and almost rum-like. Bottled at a generous 59%+ so it does need breaking down a touch.
Excellent whisky, so much flavour and it doesn't look half bad either - attractive bottle and while colour shouldn't be an indicator, it's nice to see such depth. Cool thing, glad I grabbed a bottle!

I Like It
Sherried whisky is my thing, and i love the extra ABV in this one, with it leaning to the sweeter side of course as sherry casks do. At one time such a high percentage would put me off a little, but this enhances the experience, and doesn't overpower the fruitiness. I'll buy it again.

Would recommend.
This is a really good Christmas whisky from Master of Malt. Tasting notes are accurate with a long fruity finish. The ABV allows it to take a little water to open ot up even more. It's Christmas in a bottle. Would recommend this. Once again, excellent service from Master of Malt. Bottle arrived promptly and well packaged.

Excellent dram!!
For the money you can’t pack more flavour and value into a bottle these days. Deep sherry flavour, beautiful colour and cask strength! For £50 (or £40 if bought on a flash sale)! Be buying again!

Maybe its the Fruitcake
I thought this would be my style, given the sherry cask and tasting notes. However, I found it a bit heavy to the sweet side - more of a dessert type whisky than a frequent sipper. And there was one flavor that turned my tastebuds off, maybe its the fruitcake.

Overall it's okay but not often for my palate.

Perfect Christmas whisky
Gorgeous. Deep and dark with Christmas pudding flavors. NYE gusts all thought it fabulous, mostly with a little water but one (the resident Scot) preferred it without. I love it either way.
