Notes from a blind tasting, on two different days.
Both times the malt had to stand for at least 30 minutes in the glass before tasting.
I guess that this is no longer bottled today, this dram is from earlier times. 40%, maybe 43% alcohol content. Because of the kind of sweetness in the mouth, I guess that grain is included -> so I guess a blend.
The rubbery nose is a mistake for me. Much better in the mouth, but far from fascination. Interesting part, but one sample is enough. And one of the few malts so far in which the nose drops significantly compared to the mouthfeel.
Fresh and grassy at first, something like artificial rubber with talcum powder. Far behind, subtle fruity notes of light fruit - pear, green grapes. Hardly any alcohol.
Soft, mild, slightly sweet, discreetly grassy, metallic youth, malt, light vanilla, hardly any tannins. The uncomfortably rubbery nose is no longer there.
Taste the second time: in principle as above. But now I have a little more steam on my tongue, albeit at a low level. Slightly hot pepper and oak spice.
Short to medium. It all slides out, the tongue remains slightly covered, briefly sweet and yet peppery. Taste the second time: now actually a little more tannins in the finish, but they are gone quickly anyway.
