Bottler: Bladnoch Forum
Expansion: Hogshead No. 20291
Region: Speyside, Scotland
Nose: Dry and very slightly smoky. Wood smoke, vanilla, solvents and summer apples, followed by tropical fruits and sweet malt.
Palate: Sweet and very dry, very intense. Beeswax, oak, leather and caramel, malt sugar and apple compote. In addition, a touch of fresh mint.
Finish: Very long, here comes the smoke again, which increases with time even more. Grapefruit and brown sugar next to it.
Conclusion: The different nuances complement each other really well. But he looks younger than his age promises.
