The Whisky Wire Milroy's of Soho Tweet Tasting

A few weeks back prior to our break for the holidays we held our last Tweet Tasting of 2012, exploring some of the wondrous whisky wares from one of the most iconic whisky retailers and independent bottlers on the planet; Milroy’s of Soho.
In the good company of our gathered group of Tweet Tasters, we were also joined by Isabel Graham-Yooll, the Associate Director of Milroy’s, who along with a gaggle of other whisky lovers were tweeting in on the action live from the basement of Milroy’s.
On the night we had the pleasure of sampling their; Finest Blended Malt, Longmorn 13 Year Old, Cooley 11 Year Old and their Zuidam Dutch Rye.
Here are a few of the tweeted tasted highlights from the night:

@rickfurzer Spiced pears moving into baked apples & hint of cinnamon & all spice.

@WhiskyDiscovery Initial citrus flash turns sweet and creamy, with vanilla toffee and spicy pepper.

@champdenwhite The flavours dance across the palate quite quickly making this very interesting before becoming settled and balanced.

@TheWhiskyWire Candied spiced oak, more suggestions of tropical fruit & a wisp of menthol freshness in the finish.

@rodbodtoo Smells great! Creamy lime & coconut, herbal & rye notes, even some coriander.

@ifotou Sweet dewy grass with nail polish (not remover) heavenly floral notes, really fruity I want to dive right in and stay there.

@whiskyrepublic I'm stuck in the carpenter's workshop, the oils, the different woods, the heat, the varnish - intense & a little claustrophobic.

@TIA568B Ikea flat pack furniture, Lapsang souchong, pine wood, menthol, lavendar and a little grassy, lovely!

As ever these are only a mere dusting of the tasting notes from the night’s Twitter trending dramanagins. For a full lowdown head over to Twitter and search hashtag #MilroysTT
