    A very successful drop from the house Laing!

    As always (at the Old Malt Cask) is right price / performance
    • Nose
      Spicy, lots of softwood, slightly snappy, spicy caramel, then also grapes, raisins and simmering plum jam.

      Now looks milder, creamier.
      Wood dries up and leaves more, a little orange peel and fresh pineapple.

      Still spicy caramel, some vanilla and banana and a little mash.
    • Taste
      Sweet-mild, more fruits, very ripe and sweet, honey, fruity sherry, then the brutal swing to wood, sharpness and bitterness.

      Gets suddenly strength, pickled dark fruits, all with a sweet background, ashes, nutty bitterness, sparkling alive.
    • Finish
      Pretty long, now it's smoking too!

      Cereal, redcurrant juice, distinct nut, yet with an idiosyncratic aftertaste.

      A few ethereal notes, ending with fruity bitterness, a dry wood-nut mixture and some moist smoke.
