Mighty whisky. Duncan
Taylor also bottled a few sister casks.
The nose is
wonderfully sweet and mineral at the same time. The fruit is mostly orange
marmalade, while quite a few floral elements can be discovered as well.
Violets, freshly cut grass and roses. The oak kicks in from the start. Some
vanilla and coconut. Very nice start.
Despite the high ABV,
it arrives fairly soft on the palate. Immediately very fruity. Apart from the
oranges, I also get Pink Ladies, lemon, pear, peach, figs, rhubarb and walnuts
(is that fruit?). Pineapple if you look for it. Mildly bitter as if from a
fruit tea that has been in the glass too long, but certainly within the
The finish is long
and sweet, with a touch of pepper, ginger and liquorice.
