    [December, 2018] This is another dram out of this year's advent calendar from Cadenhead - which is a good overview of their 2018 releases and I always appreciate the opportunity to do such a samples tasting around christmas time.

    And I like this dram very much! This whisky is of a typical Traditional Scotch style (distillate-driven) with fine aromas and flavours in a perfect mix and balance. No flaw or off-note and the woods do what they should do: provide structure for all other flavours without dominating them. A dram that is both very interesting to explore and dangerously quaffable - so I will buy a bottle of this excellent stuff!
    • Nose
      88 88
      The colour is pale straw and the nose offers a delicate and balanced Traditional Scotch profile with fine fruits, grassy and autumn floral aromas, honeys, spices and waxy-chalky notes. The wood is perfectly integrated and not dominant, actually I do not find any off-note at all.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is layered on spicy-floral flavours first followed by adorable honey and fruity notes before the sugars turn the dram even sweeter. But the woods counter this nicely with some bitter-spicy flavours again and a note of haystacks in autumn. Finally, an adorable dark chocolatey flavour pops up. All is perfectly balanced and without any flaw.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and a little coating without distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and extends on that fine chocolatey note mixed with honeys and spices - this is pretty tasty! No flaw or distracting moment again, this cask was bottled at a perfect time. Some water releases more grassy-floral aromas in the nose and flattens both taste and finish - I like the neat dram best.

    Grassy, fresh malt. Reminds of Littlemill! Top value for money

    Fruity and creamy.
    • Nose
      Pineapple, cinnamon buns, passion fruit and traditional cloudy lemonade.
    • Taste
      Peaches, apricots and lashings of cream. Becoming oiler with marzipan and steamed milk.
    • Finish
      Long and creamy . It is like a big fruitbasket. Lovely.
