I don't often say this but this one needs water. Once it has it the
dram opens up and delivers some 1st rate sensations. Very nice stuff.
The characteristic honey is there, but the strength makes it a little
spirity on the nose. Heather and a little mossiness coming through now.
Smoke and tannins, like someone is burning tea-leaves. Slightly
Nice fruity delivery, although the dram seems quite closed. I think
maybe this one merits a spot of water. Ah that's better. A couple of
drops has cracked it. Now its fairly fizzing away with orange sherbet
(its brought an orangeyness to the nose as well).
Brilliant with the water. Wave upon wave of flavour from little tarry
spikes, through floral notes and into bursting juicy citrus.
