N: Despite the high abv, a particularly delicate & soft nose was collectively observed. I noticed the smoke straight off [from charring I reckon], that lifts before moving onto light meats, feinty fruits and malty/earthy blossom tones. Though time separated them a little, it’s very similar in profile to the Glenburgie.
T: Again, and with water, it’s so very similar to the Burgie. It begins to stretch out as time allows, now displaying more depth & density than the Burgie. Also some plasticine notes [from the oak?], show keenly.
F: Milky/malty [Ovaltine] hot chocolate, concluding with general & candid distillery notes.
C: A well matured natural malt, the wood imposing but never too dominant.
