- Beautiful work!
Very fruity and expressive nose, complex
Vanilla and spices
Mouth powerful, sweet, syrupy and very pleasant
- A very good malt, well made and balanced.
Of medium intensity, the nose presents an interesting alliance between the sweetness of beeswax and white flesh fruits (pears) and the vivacity of fresh and mentholated notes. Very balanced, it also has a nice hardiness and a slight spicy spice (candied ginger). As the tasting progresses, the fruitiness becomes more acidulous, even exotic (orange zest, mandarin, mango). The water brings to citrus a bitterness reminiscent of grapefruit and floral notes of rose water.
The attack is very sweet for the 56.1% of the beast, but the power is felt on the mid-palate. The sharpness of ginger, well marked, enhances the acidic freshness of citrus (orange, lemon) and vegetable bitterness of this malt. Like on the nose, more grapefruit after adding water.
Long, both vegetal and fruity, always on citrus (grapefruit).
- I was expecting an explosion of exotic fruits ... which is not exactly the case, ... here it is a more complex lochside and has found a nice balance between the most classic fruits (pears, apples ), exotic aromas and honeyed, waxy notes ...
A whisky that takes a little time, but is really well balanced and excellent. Quite different from the lochsides that I tasted, more complex.
A very nice dram ...
Nose: Quite punchy and not aggressive despite the 56
Palate: sweet enough that gives way to this little spice that raises everything and on a gentle heat that invades the mouth ... waxy, orange marmalade
Final: which increases in intensity gradually, spicy, honey, of great length, again a beautiful exotic touch but which does not dominate all ... a little leather ... Pretty complex ...
