    Well, this is quite nice as a first encounter with this closed
    distillery. Rather strange nose, true, but on the palate, this is a great
    Scotch. Oops, I forgot to add water. Well, surely that means it did not need
    any.
    • Nose
      Sturdy nose with loads of grains and grasses. A weird touch of peat,
      parsley, mint and a broth of herbs. What is this? Must have been a sherry cask,
      most likely refill. After a few moments I also get some bitter oranges and
      caramel. Mix of nuts. Opens beautifully, though!
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is very sweet. A lot sweeter than the nose would have
      you anticipate. Orangettes, caramel, sugared almonds. Reminds me a bit of
      orange cake. Liquorice. Slowly but surely becomes bitter as tea, but never so
      that it becomes disturbing. Good balance.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and spicy, but again very sweet.
