SMELL nice tropical fruits, vanilla. Then chocolate, banana, honey, and juicy peach. TASTE again juicy fruit, wax, chocolate and barley. Wonderful bunnah character with soft oak. In the ABGANG mineral, fresh sea breeze, fruit puree, lemon, caramel and grass.
N: Despite 28 hogged-up years, the whisky it’s incredibly light in colour. Unsurprisingly then, its distillate-led. T: Raisin-y throughout with a silky-grainy barley blanket. F: Same till the close. C: A fine one for the ‘barley shelf’.
