    SMWS Tasting Notes

    The nose, we agreed, was thick, oily and sweet with stewed fruit, putty and builders' rubble, then maritime aspects gradually emerged. The unreduced palate was big, with a curious mouth-feel. We found it heavy and sweet, hot and salty; panellists identified vanilla, Opal Fruits, cinnamon and nutmeg, white rum and `Rock, salt and nails in a shotgun` (that was the Whisky-bard, of course). The reduced nose turned spicy and nutty; nougat and Topic bars were mentioned. The reduced palate seemed somehow friendlier with sweet, pleasant traces of spices and rum. An unusual but interesting dram from the only Caithness distillery.

  2. AlecM scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: stewed fruits and rubber and sea air.

    Taste: thick and sweet at first and then felt like i was drinking a gin and tonic!

    Finish: long, light and salty.
