A guest blog post ... A sensual evaluation of whisky

We were lucky enough to share a dram the other week with the incredibly talented artist and writer, Jessica Hagy. She is best known for her Webby award-winning blog, Indexed ( in which she sketches out random thoughts and insightful observations on conveniently file-able index cards.

Given that we love hearing about the impressions whisky leaves on new-comers we had to grab the opportunity to get Jessica to put together a guest post for us. The dram in question was the Glenfiddich 15 year old Distillery Only Bottling Batch No. 11 Cask Strength 54.8% ABV. This rare and fiesty dram was sent to Whisky for Everyone to celebrate the launch of the Glenfiddich Explorers Club. See for more info.

Very nice! I really like the 'Chemical rug burn' on mouth feel, and 'Butter smeared on old money' taste. I wish my expressions on whisky were that interesting!

Hi, I really love Glenfiddich single malts, especially anything older than 15yrs. Will have to try this one out. Scott at WhiskyExchangeShop
