Nose

Nice sweetness and fruitiness. Pineapple and bananas notes. Some citrus and mint.

Taste

Nice sweetness and fruity again like: ripe oranges and bananas. When you add some drops of water more citrus sweetness and flavours.

Finish

A Little bit short. Vanilla and lime notes. A peppery spiciness in the end. 

Comments

A nice and young Aberfeldy, maybe some years longer in the cask?

Nose

Tropical fruits, most prominently pineapple and banana, with a bit of citrus and mint which I guess the "mojito" refers to.

Taste

Sweet and again fruity, ripe oranges and bananas. Although this is a young whisky bottled at 61%, the alcohol isn't biting. When you swallow, there is a peppery spiciness in the back of the throat, but it doesn't last long. Water brings out more of the sweet citric flavours (lime).

Finish

Relatively brief. Sweet with vanilla and lime. The oak doesn't show itself really.

Comments

Solid young whisky from the "Young & Spiritely" category at SMWS. I like its sweetness but obviously the whisky lacks complexity, though that's fine considering it's a single cask that had a mere eight years to age.

SMWS Tasting notes: An intriguingly fruity nose embraced the lime and mint of a refreshing mojito with dried pineapple, sweet orange and fragrant lychee. It became more floral and spicy as a dusting of talcum powder mixed with the invigorating fumes of tiger balm. Sticky sweetness was abundant with vanilla syrup, boiled sweets and wine gums. The palate was full of life with the effervescence of sparkling orange juice and the teasing tingle of English mustard. A lemon and lime skin tang followed and combined with slightly under ripe mango and green bell pepper to further its juicy appeal. Finishing sweet and with fine oak sawdust it was evident this was a very moreish dram indeed.
