    Aroma: restrained, lacquer-oak, a slight hint of berries (currants, blueberries) caramel, iodized salt, spicy brine. Over time, apricot jam, varnish, polish, oak adds even more, locksmith - oiled rags, metal, grinding wheel, box with tools; dressed leather.

    Taste: burnt caramel, a little spices and spices, oak, lacquer, a hint of resinous wood, sweet coffee with milk.

    Finish: medium length, varnish with oak, coniferous resin, rosin, mineral-metallic notes, sweetness, caramel, grains of salt.

    Bottom line: a good calm Scotia, unlike the slightly tattered Double Cask, salty-sweet, with industrial impregnations in the aroma, and sweet, oak-lacquer in taste. Such a slightly dirty style, I really liked.

    candied fruit on yellow fruits (orange, tangerine), slightly peppery spices, vanilla in the center, a honeyed sweet return.
    the almond crushed in the center with the malt well present!
    a dram of good quality, but without much particularity with a touch of iodized salt

    • Nose
      Fairly neutral. Some ripe fruits are struggling to emerge. And somewhat alcoholic.
    • Taste
      Pretty juicy, with toffee, but always this alcohol that hangs a bit, without being unacceptable here.
    • Finish
      Honey and delicate spices, here rather spoiled by the bad alcoholic integration.

      A flat and boring dram.

      Enthusiasm 2/5
