N: Firm Auchentoshan vibes with waxy/jellied [quince, and papaya – SMWS] fruits. We’re so far in a pleasing happy place.
T: Peppery compared to the Clynelish. Feels like this one needs a little water straight away which isn’t unusual at these strengths. Becomes rather simple with dilution however and still remains quite fresh-peppery-hot. Soon the water with time tempers things, but its now simple and paper-y thin in flavour. Always some heat on the turn regardless.
C: Nice beginnings but I won’t remember this one.
