Nose

Quite fruity would say apple-ish, with some nice maltyness. After a while some more notes come up. nice combination of some flowers, some slightly roasted nuts and some spices... no, more like some herbs.
Overal a nice clean nose.

Taste

quite a nice bit of heat of the alcohol, but not overwhelming.
just as the nose quite a clean taste. Overal a nice warm sweetness of ripe fruits. quite nicely balanced

Finish

quite long, it leaves a nice filmy tasty layer in your mouth, a bit of grainy, fruity finish, with a hint of nuts

Comments

rather good whisky, but it requires some time to open up. so pour it in, take a sniff, wait a good couple of minutes and repeat :)

This provided my first experience of hte distillery at the beginning of my malt-journey. And rightly so - I know that experienced people have criticized this - but in my experience it was pretty perfect, even when I was still unaware of the necessity to add water to these CS-hitters. Full, honey-toffeed grainyness, some apricots all in a very round and consistent whole. Not incredible multifaceted but completely flawless. These cask strentgh OB-Goynes are highly recommendable IMO.
