  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    'Crafty Little Number'
    N: Beef or pork, buttery grain, some fruity, watery honey and overall a splendid subtle balance between the grain and the wood. Mild nose.
    T: Initially sharp citrus juice. Theres a herbal/vegetal note and lime pith on the bitter edge and a herbal sweetness - marjoram perhaps.  It's all rather engaging. Ground pepper lingers on the tip of tongue for the duration of a long development becoming chewy with a delicious fresh youthful maltiness.
    F: Initially the finish doesn't recover from the initial shock of the citrus arrival. After some time however theres an emergence of some limey barley at the death with some pleasant chilli wood notes. Grapefruit now features strongly, again though not fully dominating because theres still enough malt there to prevent the citrus overwhelming proceedings.
    C: This is definitely for one who craves the limes and grapefruits. Its very spey like, but drinking a Glen Grant 10 after, its apparent theres no caramel or vanilla here to soften the citrus edges, the sweetness is kept to a bear minimum. Crafty little number this, unique. Needs time to open up and a somewhat advanced palate.
