N: Upfront it smells like a caramel rich, old style blend but as it opens up theres more on offer. Sweet mint, fruit sponge, lemon drizzle cake, unspecific fragrant spices… seems as if theres more there but there is a swamped confusion here. Certainly far more interesting and pleasant than i expected.
T: A fruity and juicy arrival with lots of bitter wood developing before a bold creamy maltiness envelops.
F: Ovaltine, coffee, caramel fresh with the bitter wood lingering and giving the caramel a run for its money.
C: Having recently tried Cardhu 12 WB that Ralfy [justifiably] calls the ‘maltiest malt’, for me this one takes that title. I didn’t hold much hope for this malt initially but i ended up really enjoying it, relatively speaking.
