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
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!
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.
The finish is medium long and spicy, but again very sweet.
