  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: This closed distillery, which makes a welcome return to the list, was located just south of Peterhead and was the most easterly distillery in Scotland. It stopped production in 1982 and has since been demolished. this rare cask, a refill hoggie has a glowing apricot gold colour. The first nose is reminiscent of being inside a baker's shop, with yeast, baking bread and even hops. The taste is very pleasant with Battenberg cake and pecan nuts. With water it has become quite fruity with honey glow melon and fruit salad. It is very fresh and summery. On the palate it is quite short and again fruity. The Panel felt that it changes quite significantly with water and recommended drinking it neat.

    This
    one blows me away – it is awesome!
    • Nose
      Grainy,
      old with a touch of herbs, grass and hay. 
      Ripe bananas and tropical fruits. 
    • Taste
      Leather,
      wood spices, somewhat peaty. Caramel. Very subtle and salty!
    • Finish
      So
      long and complex with wood spices.
