    N: Rum n raisins toffee, fruit & nut and some sweet underlying vegetal<copper soft funk. It’s distillate/ethanol firm with further notes of dates & honey [Nick], linseed, grasses,...

    T: More of the same. Natural/true, grassy, barley savoury-sweet with a hint of a stagnant glass of tap water. There’s a gradual building heat that probably won’t lead to anything.

    F: ,... and it doesn’t. Finishes neatly on ground linseeds and grassy hummus. Balanced. Uneventful.

    C: A hip flask job that grows on me. Littlemill style in my book, or is Littlemill a Strathmill style?

    A great bottling from a distillery you don't come across that often. Refill vessels and time (can) deliver great whiskies, this is no exceptioin. It's complex, fruity and malty, with enough spiciness and wood.
    • Nose
      A playful nose indeed. Rhubarb crumble, lychee, vanilla, coconut, creme brulee, cinnamon and lacquered wood. It's very fresh and vibrant. A perfect combination of malt, fruit, oak and spice.
    • Taste
      Very pleasant, with enough acidity to counterbalance the sweetness. It's very much on vanilla ice cream, creme brulee and coconut. It's accompanied by sour rhubarb (again), poached pears and pineapple. The wood shows at the end, with mild tannins and a hint of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Rather long, even slightly floral (rose), fruity (a combination of the aforementioned fruits), cake-y and softly spiced on cinnamon.

    Notes from the website: https://www.smws.com/whisky/danish-pastries-and-pickled-ginger

    Issueprice (Dec. 2017): 130 GBP

    "The nose is subtle and playful – cedar and sandalwood, cinnamon and ginger and the teasing sweetness of nougat, honey and Belgian waffles. The wood hits the palate as toasted coconut, willow twigs and seasoned oak – the sweetness becomes caramel wafers and Danish pastries and the spice is pickled ginger – it also develops juicy orchard fruits and lime marmalade. The reduced nose is fruitier and more perfumed (bramble wine, juniper berries, pineapple) with acidic Moffat toffee*. The sweeter, softer palate discovers tinned lychees, vanilla ice-cream and Bounty bars with white pepper, chilli and oak tingling the finish for a rounded experience. *hard boiled toffee with a citric tang from the south of Scotland."
