Wayne Gretzky Red Cask No 99

Lovely golden colour from being finished in red wine casks makes me want to crack this bottle open!

The nose is woody but not old wood, it’s a bit like a fresh pallet if that makes sense. There’s also lots of vanilla and caramel and it reminds me of McCowans toffee Dainties (Scottish colloquialism!) I get a wee bit of spice as well

The finish is very smooth but lacking in the real conviction you’d get from an aged dram but not thin like a young spirit either. It’s woody and nutty on the way down and not unpleasant at all
