Wormtub Bottling Note

Wormtub is a blended malt Scotch whisky that shines a light on the glory of the eponymous bit of distilling kit. As the name suggests, a worm tub is a big ol' wooden tub with a long copper coiled tube (the worm) submerged in cold water. Vapour from a still enters tube and condenses into spirit as it touches the tube's cold sides. The resulting spirit is often pretty heavy stuff, with its meaty, almost sulphury (in a good way) notes kept intact.

While plenty of distilleries have got rid of their worm tubs in favour of more efficient, easier to maintain condensers, some have remained part of the worm tub faithful because of the character imparted to the spirit - and that character is exactly what Wormtub is all about! Made exclusively with single malts from distilleries still using traditional worm tubs, expect a powerful, full-bodied whisky-based homage to the trusty tub.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich, meaty, with notes of sherry, leather, dates, and cocoa. Very 'big', very complete.

Palate: Powerful, but not overpowering. Cherries, caramel and the emergence of wood-spices link into fresh garden mint and ripe strawberries.

Finish: Lingering, with candied cherry fudge and the merest wisp of smoke as it fades into leather and walnuts with a resurgence of the sherry influence.

Overall: A masterclass in everything a rich and meaty whisky should be.
