    Alfred Barnard Blend #2

    This was the second whisky I blended using the Master of Malt Home Blending kit based on an Alfred Barnard recipe (see blog).

    The nose has some malt and peat smoke.  This version is a bit more subdued than Blend #1,  The taste is still smooth and rich, orange maramalade and caramel notes.  The finish is spicy and long with tobacco and smoke.  With water the finish becomes a little more peppery.  Overall  this is still pretty hefty for a blend and my guess with less than 20% grain most people would assume this is a single or perhaps a blended malt whisky. Overall this version was more balanced than blend #1, but overall I will stick to drinking whisky and let the experts do the blending.
