- For about 30 euros a good price-performance ratio
Teenage nose with apple and pear drops. Very fruity. You could also describe the nose as an apple and cinnamon cake. Toffee notes, light acidity and logging are available.
Light mouthfeel, which is more due to the low alcohol content. Much spicier than the nose. Various spices combine with ripe fruits to a great taste experience. Wood flavors, toffee, a little honey and vanilla complete this bottling.
Short - medium long and spicy.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt The
nose is of medium-body with a superb balance. There are notes of
peppermint, cut herbs and cereal sugars with juicy barley. The palate is
medium-bodied with notes of barley and cereals, some cut herbs and a
menthol note with developing oak. The finish is of good length with a
touch of warmth.
Whiff of soft weedy peat open up in the glass, causing light heat and
pungent to the nose. Sniff it softly and discover some goodies beneath
it, oily hazelnut and touch of pine, follow by hints of chinese herbal
Palate:- Tinge of decay
note upfront, quite weedy. Soft and non spicy, hence allowed to hold the
liquid longer on the palate. Effortlessly let it drift from weedy and
restrained sweetness to toasted seasoned wood with hints of vanilla.
Delicate dram and patient is essential on appreciating this dram.
Finish:- Smooth and warm ripe fruits and honey carry on, simple and short.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- Juicy nose with cream fudge with a little mild smoke on top - mouth feel is sweetish with some sherry oak and baked apples, building up to dry "tannic" attack - finishing of with a nutty, dried apricot sultana - cereals echoing up to a minute after swallowing. Pleasant with an interesting angle, wanting to take one more sip ..
- That`s a real "Speysider", sweet, creamy mouthfilling, you may love it as a daily dram with honey, toffee in a medium finish. Good choice for that price.
- Nice for the price and to share.
