Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Aerstone 10

Aerstone 10-  I have a lowland malt to share with you that has rested for a decade near the Scottish coast. The seaside terroir has given us a thick and glassy smooth drink with no edge or attitude…..The nose is light and sweet with the flavor of shortbread right from the oven.  My bottle was enjoyed by the tasting team and vanished post haste.  While not a winner in terms of character or complexity, it still made for a pleasant fall dram.  With only 80 proof in the tank, it was mellow and caramel rich but less than satisfying.  This may be the appropriate single malt for you if you have a tiki bar next to your hot tub.  Be sure to wear the neon tropical bathing suit, that might get more attention than the whisky. Rated a generous 6.5 on the Snob scale, adequate, but a tad dull.
