    In terms of flavor variety may not happen much (at least for me at the moment), but I like what happens.
    • Nose
      I like the nose. Even without I manage the great aufzerrozeln.
      Beautiful vanilla sweet with delicate smoke of smoldering coal scratching in the background. Maybe something like banana and pineapple.
    • Taste
      Nice intensity in the mouth. Reasonably creamy.
      There is the sweetness with vanilla again, the fine smoke and again something mild fruity. Maybe apricot this time.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the slightly ashy feeling of smoke with dwindling sweetness remains.

    I think that's the lightest whisky I've ever had in my glass. I wonder how drained the barrel must have been if that color comes around after 14 years. After all, the nose is quite pleasant. A little caramel, a bit of lemon and oak. Taste and finish are then just sprittig. The finish is then a really nasty citrus / alcohol? -Kick and spoils everything. Even water can not save anything here.

    Very good malt.
    • Nose
      Typical Mortlachnote (ginger in vanilla sugar), vanilla, oak, chocolate, coconut, almond oil and a hint of heather honey
    • Taste
      Delicate. Vanilla and coconut, a little spice of oak followed by this Mortlachnote of ginger and vanilla sugar and heather honey.
    • Finish
      Aromatic and sweet with beautiful oak notes and almond oil sweetness to the end.
