    Color: pale gold

    Outstanding nose with and without water, large dilution reserve, almost no barrel influence, sherry certainly not, bottled at the perfect time, a great distillate in its purest form.

    Tasted alongside Burnside 1991 DR and The Huntly 1997 DT.

    It becomes clear that these are not "real" blended malts, and in contrast to some other "premium" distillery, there is a striking common denominator (= distillate character). I will keep an eye on Burnsides.
    • Nose
      Closed at the beginning, moment ... Less lavender, more thyme, acacia honey, fruit blossom (sweet with a hint of mildew), lime blossom, autumn leaves, no hint of alcohol, intense scented, powdered sugar, almost a little soapy. Oranges come out later. With water: Less soapy, more resinous, more lavender, less mildew, the notorious tree juice, more oranges, whipped cream.
    • Taste
      Amazingly soft and round for 59% alcohol, for my taste that is still too much. With water: acacia honey, lilac, then lavender, fresh yeast dough, oranges, whipped cream, intense and oily. Powdered sugar.
    • Finish
      Creamy, almost no wood influence, medium length, only slightly dry towards the end. Extremely fruity, orange and whipped cream, instead of fruit blossom the much musty hawthorn blossom. yeast
