    Nose - My first impression is polish and pineapple but still ripe plum and Turkish delight and caramel.

    Palate - Very smooth but more fizz than neat and it is very creamy  mixed in with the fruit.

    Finish - Still long but more restrained now.

    A beautiful whisky, and very individual profile to boot.

    I think whisky this good could convert any non believer.
    • Nose
      This is one of those old whiskies that smells old, on leather, old oil and wax.

      There is also ripe fruits of ripe plum, mango, blood orange and peaches in syrup.
    • Taste
      Wow, that is good full fat on the palate on some beautiful Turkish delight, peaches like the nose hinted at, and something waxy & slightly oily like a top grade olive oil mixed with vinaigrette but obviously sweeter.

      Yes a classic old Lochside fruit bomb but also with the waxiness like old clynelish but this is more full bodied.

      Its gets creamier as you go on, with icing sugar in abundance.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and smooth but some excellent fizz in there.

      Actually the finish is massive, it just keeps going.

    Powerful, complex, really not bad - better than the sister cask 7535

      Green fruits, sherry wood, leathery notes, little toffee, spices, cloves, hints of acacia honey, nutty - pretty good

    Pineapple caramel oily and waxy really coats the mouth, a very nice fruit bomb
