    Didn't have too high expectations for this one after finding the Double Cask rather crude.
    But this is excellent stuff. Delicious.
    Just wondering why they had to color it ???
    • Nose
      87 87
      Surprisingly soft and gentle.
      Sweet caramel and toffee.
      A mix of fruits, oranges, a slightly sour undertone.
      A floral waft mix with a hint of smoke which now and then even have a touch of peat.
      Water make it more "yellow" on the fruit, more grapefruit than orange.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily texture on arrival.
      Sweet, nutty, fruity.
      Gentle spices, some herbs.
      Perfect ABV unless you got the bottle and want to experiment. Spices survives a good dash of water, but I feel it gets a little more flat and not as complex.
      A complexity that makes it feel a lot more mature than the 15 on the label.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Nutty. Light smoke.
      As with all great whisky you are left wishing it lasted a little longer.
      Water doesn't change the length, but it is less sweet and it brings out some slightly bitter smoke.
