  1. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Cask No: 54.61

    SPICY & SWEETSWEET SHOP ON THE EDGE OF TOWN...
    Price £55.00

    The unreduced aroma brought notes of green apple, bramble and a vivacious sweetness that veered between pineapple syrup and butterscotch. Whereas with water we found a drier profile which brought a savoury cereal quality with bittersweet notes of lemon and juicy fruit chewing gum. Neat -the taste had a fizz of apple sours and a confectionary quality redolent of flumps and fruit chews. Water brought it more towards tart gooseberry, ground spices with a grassy, white pepper nibble. Some rich tea biscuits and custard creams provide nourishment towards the end.
