Unlike what the label claims, this in fact a teasponed (blended) malt.

Angus McRaild:

Quite a few Wardhead 1997 have popped out in recent years, Wardhead being the name of 'teaspooned', thus vatted, Glenfiddich-based blended malt. But did you ever spot anyone carrying teaspoons at any Scottish whisky facility, except at tea-time? Colour: straw. Nose: they're all a little rustic and grassy, peely, on apples and green pears, then lager and a little sourdough. No exception here. With water: fresh bread, a little plaster, oats, chalk, porridge sweetened with honey… Mouth (neat): malt whisky exactly au naturel, with some barley, soft liquorice, apple juice, apple pie, ale and orange zests. Perhaps for barley freaks. With water: it swims extremely well on the palate, gaining wideness and assertiveness (please explain, S.) Even more sweet barley and ales, which I find lovely. Finish: medium, very barley-y and kougelhopfy (you're hopeless, S.) Almonds and pistachio syrup in the aftertaste. Comments: it took its time but water helped a lot, esp. on the palate. Well done, Mahalia Jackson! (because she's Mahalia Jackson on the label, is she not? Sarah Vaughan? Ella?)
