Swimming wings in the indoor pool
It may come as a surprise that this distillery, located not far from the Glenlossie Distillery between Elgin and Forres and built by John Haig & Co. in 1971, also produces the legendary Loch Dhu (the "black whisky"). The present barrel is more typical: very pale color with a fruity / fragrant nose, sweet / syrupy with esters and acetone, maybe even an idea ground coffee in the background. Water turns this into water wings in a warm indoor plastic and some chlorine. Add a touch of sweet lychees and a pinch of pineapple. The taste is undiluted syrupy, but shorter than expected. It stays sweet with water, but dries drastically on the finish. A good whisky for summer evenings or as an aperitif.
