Cassis sweets in the sauna
After 1938, the distillery, which was built in 1871 at the fishing port Buckie on Moray Firth, came to Bell's. As a single unusual. The barrel of European oak has given its contents the color of polished mahogany. The first scent impression is reminiscent of soft cassis sweets, but soon come appetizing scents of sizzling roast pork with applesauce and Stiefelwichse. Water changes everything: the fruits are now overripe apples, the sizzle burned, the jam becomes saddle soap, and behind everything stands the scent of hot wood-like in a sauna. At full strength, the smell reminds first of sweet tobacco, then it is so dry that it contracts your tongue. Water changes everything again and makes it pleasantly cool and beautifully balanced. The long finish and pleasantly spicy aftertaste let it linger long.
