A sneaky malt. Starts easy and light and proves to be much more complex. A malt I would like to be friend with, but that I fail in really liking though. A curiosity.
Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
Light but expressive. White fruits. Apples, pears, and the freshness of a window box of geraniums after the rain. And salted liquorice to muscle it up. A little touch of white coffee and a light refreshing anise note. And fish cooking-herbs. Cod fish loin on a bed of fennel before getting into the oven. Very "Pultneyan" it is. Not really my playground, to be honest, but definitely interesting.
Starts on kind vanilla. Quite light (43?) but far from being weak. The salted liquorice comes back on the foreground, with more salt than liquorice actually. And still something quite flowery. Salt and vanilla call the tune. The whole is nicely balanced but remains less playful than the nose.
The floral notes remain and evolve on the bitterness of the grapefruit's skin.
