The aroma is rich, dense. Burnt wiring, leather goods, mints, ammonia, spices, wood.
We stood there and breathed .... The sweetness of manzanila, butteriness, freshly baked bread, a hint of malt notes. The berry basket, what exactly, is rather difficult to identify, but the emphasis is on red berries (raspberries, lingonberries, cranberries).
The taste is bright, powerful, explosive. Smoke, smoke mixed with the sweetness of manzanila.
Berry - fruit bouquet, vanilla, cranberry juice, spices.
The finish is long-lasting, sweet with a noble bitterness. Burnt rubber, peat, spices, berry sourness, sunflower seeds.
Conclusion: Wonderful scotch tape from the island of Mull, with its own advantages and disadvantages. Scarce in shades and midtones, for such an age-old whisky it is not good. However, it is perfectly balanced and distinctive.
The finish at Manzanilla Cask gave an unforgettable sweetness on the palate that harmonizes perfectly with peat derivatives.
Whisky that you want to drink, drink and drink without stopping.
