    Great nose and finish, but the taste is lagging behind a bit. Still a wonderful whisky though! Tasted 20/04/2016 in a line-up of closed distilleries. 
    • Nose
      Wow, fabulous nose! Fresh red fruit (red currant, red grapes), oak and a whiff of tobacco. 
    • Taste
      Balanced, with darker red fruit than the nose (cherries, plums, but also still red currants), and lots of anise (though a bit too much if you ask me). Prickly at the side of the tongue. 
    • Finish
      Long. Basically the taste persists, but for a very long time. Did I say long? Because it is long. Really.
