#BlindTasting Series 5 - Review

Series 5 of #BlindTasting has recently finished and as usual I'll post a summary. This ended up being our longest series due to Christmas and pressures of work - it extended over 4 months!
This one, like all the rest, has brought up a few surprised with the five of us trying to identify 15 mystery drams through smell and taste, having #NoPreconceivedIdeas to sway our opinions.

#MiniTasting - Chapter 7 Blends

@Chapter7whisky is an independent bottler originally based in Switzerland, I've tried a number of their single cask bottlings and generally been very impressed!

They have bottled nearly 40 casks, at the time of writing, but this time @jwbassman_ supplied three of their blends for @WhiskynStuff, @ScotchB78 and myself to try!

South African Twitter Tasting

I'm sure you've read my recent #FanBoy post about Bain's launching a 15yo Single Grain, the 'standard' NAS dram bring one of my favourites. Well a recent visit from the postman delivered an unexpected surprise!

Three large samples of @BainsWhisky 15yo Single Grain, @ThreeShipsSA 8yo and 10yo. A few tweets and I found out a few lucky whisky tweeters had received a similar parcel from @TheWhiskyMaker, so there was nothing else for it but to share out the samples and arrange a tasting!
