The Whisky Wire Berry Bros & Rudd Tweet Tasting

Last night we held the latest in our on-going string of hugely successful Twitter trending Tweet Tastings, this time exploring a bounty of bottled beauties from Berry Bros a Rudd.
In the esteemed dramming company of our Tweet Tasters and followers at home, we were also joined by BBR’s very own spirits guru’s in the form of Rob Whitehead and Adrian Lancer, as we sampled four of their latest Berrys’ Own offerings, which comprised of: Littlemill 1992, North of Scotland 1973, Jura 1976 and Bunnahabhain 1989.
To add the cherry on top of the dramming cake of four absolute dramspanking drops of drammage, it was also a great achievement for the tasting to trend at number one on Twitter in the UK. Hootendrammy!
Here are a few of the tweeted tasted highlights from last night:
Littlemill 1992
@TIA568B On the nose, quite light, fresh, grassy, spicy, herbal, golden delicious apples and white grapes.
@TheWhiskyWire Milkybar buttons floating in a cup of green tea with lemon.
@themisswhisky Peach cobbler, pineapple upside down cake, bubblegum and bitter lemon.

North of Scotland 1973
@OliverKlimek Your trademark old grain nose: Apricot, crème brulee & vanilla.
@EdinburghWhisky Maple syrup poured over a tropical fruit salad. Toffee sweetness too!
@whisky4everyone Nose is packed with vanilla, butterscotch, wood spice, bitter orange and waxy furniture polish.

 Jura 1976
@BBRrob First tiniest hint on the nosing, parma ham (other regional hams are available!)
@ChrisWhiskyman Mature, leafy Oloroso with a light medicinal note and a touch of smoke. Very clean, no sulphur.
@LRWhisky Heavy nose, rich Victorian smoking rooms, oak panels and a real life game of Cluedo. Decadent.
Bunnahabhain 1989

@SohoWhiskyClub Wow! lots of peach, watermelon, rich exotic fruits, grapes, bit of green apple, with some burnt ash type stuff.
@greatwhisky Nose is kinda like green fruit gums, very slight peaty goodness, honey on ryvita!
@abbeywhisky Liquorice, sweet flavours, almonds, Christmas cake & brandy on the nose.
