Earthly and grassy at first. Orangy. Red berries. Peach. Gooseberry. Menthol. Sweet spices.
Very oily. Follows nose nicely. Red berries continue. Pepper. Oranges. Strong on alc, needs water.
A tad sour at first. Quite long finish. Barrel influence. Chemical. Dry Development. Red berries.

Brechin 28 yo 1977/2005 (53.3%, OB, 2040 bottles) Colour: pale straw. Nose: oh, extremely fresh and clean (even hyper-clean), starting on freshly squeezed lemons and whiffs of white wood smoke. Not extremely demonstrative, maybe a little shy, but very elegant. Notes of flint, mashed potatoes, wet limestone, chalk… Quite some freshly cut grass as well, hints of fresh parsley, lemon balm, hints of cold lager, caramelized lemon pie. More and more ashes and faint whiffs of lavender (the flower, not any derivative).Again, it’s very elegant… Mouth: exactly what I expected, the palate is very coherent, with lots of lemon juice, grass juice (good for your health!), maybe some salad and a little liquorice. It gets then a little fruity (orange sweets, violets sweets), with notes of gin fizz… Let’s add a few drops of water now: yes it gets smoother, with quite some apple juice and a little candy sugar, but there’s also quite some bitterness now (from the wood?) Nothing excessive, though. Also something strangely maritime (oyster juice but maybe it’s the lemon ;-)). The finish is rather long and dry, leaving your mouth in good shape. A dry white wine? Very good, in any case, even if it’s, once again, a little austere. 87 points.
- Nose: fresh & sweet, citrus fruits, apples, vanilla, oak. Clear and straightforward.
Mouth: very lively, tingling, clear oak, apples, the citrus fruits look again and also a little pepper ..
Finish: the wood comes out clearly, but not too hard. Slightly tart, slightly menthol. A little vanilla and hints of fruit. Rather dry.
Conclusion: Beautiful Bourbon barrel whisky. The age can be guessed by the oak, yet it is very fresh and lively. I say well composed, albeit without special highlights.
Fresh, clean, lemons, smoky
Fruity (lemons, apples, oranges), grassy, liquorice
Long and dry
- A delightful and very rare single malt of the Eastern Highlands, sophisticated and soft. Despite being rich, is a round and ripe. Expresses freshness with notes on the nose and flavors reminiscent of dried fruit.
