Review: Storm Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Review: Storm Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

From Glasgow’s Whisky Shack Company (a private bottler, retailer, and jack of all trades in the booze biz) comes this new whisky blend. No age statement, but the motto is “Malt Whisky with a PEATY finish.” The blend comprises mainly coastal distilleries, plus some Islay spirit.

Very young — the darkish color is not of much help here — it is raw grain, almost corn character, that dominates the nose. This gives Storm a bit of a rough edge from the start, which is actually in keeping with the name if you think about it.

Moving into the palate we find more of that grain character, lasting and malty. Really, pretty funky, and the secondary characteristics of nougat and honey are lost in the shuffle.

86 proof.
