    A Ruby Port finish from a series of single cask bottlings from the spring of 2021. Color light reddish gold.
    The first impression on the nose is a dominant sweetness with a little vanilla and steamed fruits, apples, pears. Then comes a little alcoholic freshness and the slight acidity of light plums and mirabelle plums. The whisky stays on the light, fruity, sweet side, there are no dark notes and only a little wood, no bitterness in the aroma. Maybe some sweetened, flavored tobacco in the background.
    The taste is sweet plums, then bitterness, vanilla and alcohol, again the flavored tobacco. Somewhat disordered aroma. Starts sweet and ends dry on the palate. The flavors seem a bit too fake, the alcohol not really well integrated. With water, the aromas become too thin and evaporate, leaving the somewhat artificial vanilla.
    Bitterness and a little vanilla remain in the aftertaste, the fruit flavors have evaporated too quickly.
    The whisky is not really ripe and round but starts with a potpourri of flavors that is too wild, but that does not turn into a sustainable complexity. Fruit nectar with flavored pipe tobacco - only half-yummy ... Maybe the whole thing would have worked better with a smoky Glen Scotia.
