    Very "exotic" on the nose: citrus, cocos, pineapple and sweet oranges. A bit cedarwood,too. Lovely - may I have this as a perfume, please!

    On the palate still very fruity (as above), but with stronger wood-influence (but not too much, definitively) here. Great balance.

    Medium mouthfeel and very good length (for just 40,4%). Had it together with the 1966 Douglas Laing #9511, which was a lovely pairing. Both where fantastic!

    a wonderful smelling single malt and damn good drinkable
    • Nose
      herbs, fennel, lovely sweet fruit comes through, biscuit, leather and tobacco notes,
      longer in the glass are rubber / plastic notes
    • Taste
      Herbs, wet wood,grain, slightly bitter but not unpleasant, then the sweetness comes through again, back off a little pepper
    • Finish
      sweet spiciness, old Grain notes, wet wood and the finish is medium long
