    A midsummer night's dream. Beautiful.
    • Nose
      Waxiness, hint of nut in the background , nots of tropical fruits and honey. Use a drop of water.  More will come.
    • Taste
      Amazing sweetness, The honeyed element continues  this time with more rich tropical fruits even with the water. Complex.
    • Finish
      Long, fruited and elegant. Take your time with this one. No hurry.

  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very good dram. Just an inch shy of magnificent.
    • Nose
      Slightly greasy, vaguely fruity, with pollen, fresh flowers and corn. Butter that's been on the table a while, A bit of smoke comes out with water. 
    • Taste
      Neat it's a little too nervous for my tastes, but with some water to cut it it settles into its frame better, and what a work of art it is when it does. Waxy, honeyed. Leather bags and faint fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Leaves an oily impression with a little bit of salted liquorice.

    WITH WATER

    Sweeter on the nose with candied fruits and a little honey. The palate is OK but the oak is coming through just a tad too much for my liking.

    Finish - getting a little bitter but still pleasant.

    Its not complicated, what I would call old school single malt, does the job without fuss but not quite great.
    • Nose
      Smoked meats mixed in with pineapple, kiwi and slight gooseberry notes. There is also rich fruit cake and a very slight woodiness.
    • Taste
      Potent, slightly bitter on the tip of the tongue with sweetness at the back of the palate. There is some fruit, green gauge? There is also caramel wafer.
    • Finish
      Long, quite dry and slightly bitter.

    Nose: Caramel candied apple. White pepper. Cinnamon. A mix of citrus juices (orange, pink grapefruit, tangelo). A touch of wax and oil paint. White flour. Soft white and milk chocolates. Hot cross buns. Vanilla. Moist tobacco and clean soil.

    Palate: Beautiful mature waxy notes with a touch of char. Strong and syrupy. Tart and tangy fruit notes. Very spicy…very chewy. Rich in ginger, ground nutmeg and cinnamon. Just a touch of fennel. More juicy fruit notes, moving into more tropical flavours like tangerine and pineapple. Mouth-coating and delicious. The cask is still singing loudly here, but it’s clean and lovely.

    Thoughts: Bottled at an absolutely gorgeous age and state.
