...that is not impressive neither in its nose nor on the palate. I had much better St. Magdalene drams before and it seems this cask was bottled just because it came from a lost distillery. Collector's stuff...
The colour is pale gold and the nose is very punchy due to the high abv. After some breathing a subtle grassy-floral profil develops with some shy fruity impressions which is not very impressive.
The taste is barley sugary sweet with grassy and floral flavours in a spicy wooden framework. Quite simple and not impressive either, even after some chewing. A shy chocolate note pops up, that's it.
The dram arrives hot and almost not coating on the palate, the mouthfeel is neither impressive, too. The finish is short and adds a lot of hot spicy flavours. Some water does not change a lot and a further reduction releases chalky-mineral aromas in the nose and turns the taste smoother but not more interesting. But it is easy quaffable now (if you do not think of the price tag of this bottle)...
