For me this is a unique product. It is a single grain, but with a great age. I tasted blind, so I was really unaware of the age, single grain, and other specs. I was surprised by the fruity entry and the pleasant mouth feeling. The taste is great, a combo of sweetness and fruitiness with some hidden mental and a hint of smoke in the back of the mouth (very feint). Really unique product (only 181 bottles)! It is very refined, fresh, complex and intelligent. Top product!
Burned sugar, wood, fire, porto...
Great feeling in the mouth and on the tongue. Not very oily, but you sure notice it is there (maybe due to the strong alcohol?). Atypical taste with a sweet entry but it’s not the usual vanilla or burned sugar. A bit fructose like… The taste is fresh, a combo of mint and fresh green apples. The bouquet is full of flowery tones, like lavender, magnolia blossoms, etc. Hint of white pepper. Sturdy and also gentle. Really nice single grain!
Great aftertaste, rich and slightly mineral. Taste keeps evolving... At the back of the mouth there is a hint of hidden turf, really gentle and hidden. Beautiful complexity!
