Tonight I started on my free bottle of Gibson's Finest Sterling. I was not impressed at first, finding it rather harsh. It has grown on me somewhat, though. It's a bit simple, lots of alcohol evident in the nose, a bit of toffee and spice on the palate. Very short finish. Probably not the best representation of the Gibson's brand, but nevertheless an undemanding anytime whisky which probably mixes well.
Also on the menu tonight: Islay Mist 8 and Aberlour a'bunadh.
