    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 101 bottles from cask no. 3739

    Drawn from an American oak barrel, the colour is deep and rich, a warm gold. The first impression on the nose is tangerine peel and juice, with some candlewax, but this soon edges towards syrup sponge then trifle (with vanilla custard and cream decorated with ‘hundreds and thousands’). After a while the cream becomes cold cream makeup remover. It tastes well at natural strength: smooth and creamy; sweet and fruity. Water reduces the aroma initially, then the fruit notes re-emerge as Fruit Pastilles – denser and sweeter. The texture remains smooth, now slightly spritzich and lively; the taste is predominantly sweet and slightly drying in its effect. A long finish, with hessian in the after-taste. We were reminded of warm sand dunes on a summer’s day.

  5. TheNose scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Wow, fruit, strawberries, spicy, pineapple, aceton, very complex and very nice

    Taste: goats cheese!, sweet, mint, unusual, not so full

    Finish: slight bitterness

    The nose it what gives this dram its 90 points!
