- Taste sensation!
- This whisky really needs some time, especially in the nose things get better and fuller in time, more intense. Mostly sweet, with some light fruity elements, surprisingly full and strong for such a low Abv.
Fruity, citrus, lemon, also a little earthy or mossy. Also some sweetness, vanilla. I get this grainy associations now, at times this could very well be a single grain. Full nose, no pickering alcohol, later on perhaps a little. Orange and pineapple come in.
A little pickering, sweet, vanilla, fruity too. A little of peach. Vanilla cake, a bit buttery, later on it gets stronger, with some earthy notes.
Still a little pickering, sweet, vanilla, grainy again. Not very long, some wood, with again more earthy notes at the end.
A fresh and light start that will turn more malty. It doesn't seem to hinder from the fact that it was so long bottled and now opened.
Chocolate chip cookies and a breakfast of cereals with some fruit on the side.
A very malty and barley driven whisky. Very easy to drink and perhaps not all that complicated, but still rich in the flavour it has. Caramels, cake and butter.
Fresh oven baked whitebread with abricotjam or marmalade on top of it.
Still lots of grain. Woodspices and also some coffee with a good deal of sugar in it.
