    f
    Mighty whisky. Duncan
    Taylor also bottled a few sister casks.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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
      acceptable.
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      and sweet, with a touch of pepper, ginger and liquorice.
