    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 286 bottles from cask no. 5882

    A harvest gold whisky with light beading. The nose brings smoked cheese and ham slices with a little herbal toothpaste to wash them down. The usual footbaths and bath salts are not far behind with plenty of nose prickle to give it some zip. Warming and mouth coating at natural strength and much sweeter than expected. Coal smoke and Kumquats in the finish. The addition of water introduces some floral notes: jasmine and a little perfume. Altogether, palate cleansing. This is an incredibly well balanced young whisky with both smoke and sweetness in the finish, but we all agreed that it is best tasted at its natural, unreduced strength. A winter warmer.
