...and this is another fine example of a great Acorn pick! Absolutely recommended to all lovers of fruits & honeys-driven "Traditional Scotch" drams...
Tons of adorable OBFs (old bottle flavours) float my sensory system right from the first sniff - these are not the solvent-alike OBFs but they rather smell like half-fermented sour-sweet fruits (I adore these aromas).
The taste truly overwhelms my taste buds with again loads of old "Traditional Scotch" style flavours, hard to describe but I am sure everyone will identify these on the spot. There are many different ripe and over-ripe fruits beside nuts, honeys, spices and appropriate wooden notes. No flaw or off-note (I never had one in an Acorn bottling so far).
The mouthfeel is very creamy and instantly coating and the finish is long and chewable. I detect a minor drying feeling (papers) but this is not distracting at all - it rather counters nicely the massive sweet attack of all the other flavours. Water turns the dram smoother and releases some more aromas and flavours - I like this dram both neat and reduced to about 46% abv.
