Colour: light gold. Nose: coffee and cappuccino from the oak at first, then butterscotch and fresh croissants, which just flatters my Frenchness. This one is more on cakes than on fruits, but it does all this good. Pear tarte. With water: no wait, fruits are coming. Rather bananas and ripe apples, as well as white peaches. Or vine peaches. Mouth (neat): excellent, I’m afraid to say. A tad rougher, with rather more herbs and grasses, but it’s also showcasing a very complex lemon-ness, tangy and tart, and yet fulfilling. Okay. Some spearmint. With water: phoo, that tanginess! And the chalk, lemons, mint, the two fennels seeds hidden behind those… It’s all pretty perfect. Finish: medium perfectly balanced. Fruit peels and salad with a touch of honey. An unexpected salty touch in the aftertaste. Comments: I’ll have to re-do my kind-of-official ranking of the distilleries soon. Glenburgie will be up for sure.
