#wishkyhour

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

A (very nice) whisky sample, with nothing more than a logo, a date and #wishkyone on it and nothing else, other than a burning desire to open and taste it straight away of course!

Wishky are the latest company to sell whisky sample boxes, the difference with wishky is you get the option to do a blind tasting of the samples. Their sample boxes come with cards containing details on the whisky and tasting notes which correspond to a code on each samples label.

For the #wishkyhour tasting however we weren’t given a card with tasting notes one, or any clue in fact as to what was in the bottle (other than whisky obviously). Instead we were to join in the tweet tasting with our opinions on the whisky and if we felt brave, make an attempt at guessing it’s origin. So in that vein here are some of the opinions given, but I won’t be revealing which whisky it is (I’ll give you a link to it though so I’m not being too cruel).

Wishky did give us clues throughout the tasting as to what it might be:

And eventually Jon did guess correctly and put us all out of our misery. I’m not going to giveaway the answer here though in case you sign up to Wishky and end up with a sample of this in your tasting box. For anyone desperate to know though you can follow this link to the Wishky site for full details and official tasting notes: Wishky Twitter Tasting.

I’d like to say a big thank you to Wishky for arranging this – their packaging is great, a good sized sample (50ml) and the blind tasting experience was something brand new! I’m definitely going to sign up to their tasting boxes after this, which by the way you can pay monthly and cancel at anytime so it’s more flexible for you. I’d also like to give a shout out to everyone else that took part, you can find them on twitter by following the links below:
