    Perfectly acceptable just slightly better than MOTR
    • Nose
      Yeasty, lemon puff biscuits (just with less lemon), then it gets really grassy and reminds me of older Cragganmore

      Now we have a problem because it reminds me of 70`s & 80`s White Horse blend which is not a good sign.
    • Taste
      The palate is thankfully better but just a little thin on honey, butter a few lime notes, olive oil and wafer.
    • Finish
      Not too long, with more sweet fruits coming through like yellow plums.

    Rich and fruity nose, with loads of banana foam and cola cube sweets, fresh apple peel, vanilla custard, and roasted coffee beans. A couple of drops of water released additional notes of sea salt. Nosed blind I would have put it much older than a 10yo, as some lovely 'old wood' notes from the cask also came forward after 10 minutes in the glass. Lovely stuff, with a very different profile to that I associate with recent releases from the distillery. Well-balanced on the palate too (albeit a touch thin), where warm chilli spice mingles with fruits (banana again, apples and cherries) and a faint waft of something smoky. Medium-length finish with peppery notes lingering.
