  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It is decent enough but a little boring and non descript in all honesty.

    Not a very complex profile.
    • Nose
      Smells like an old grain whisky on vanilla, double cream and biscuit.
    • Taste
      Spirity and sweet with a strong alcohol blast.

      It is creamy at the back of the palate and again vanilla , biscuit but with hints of creamy orange
    • Finish
      Medium length with sweetness on the tail

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Pale gold

    A mild nose, thick and creamy (crème fraiche, cream soured
    with lemon juice) with traces of Caramac and a light gamey note, more rabbit
    than pheasant. The taste at natural strength is sweet, with light acidity; a
    refreshing mentholated note and a hint of white chocolate. Water continues the
    meaty/creamy theme, now reminiscent of Caboc Highland cheese; the texture is
    smooth, creamy/buttery; sweet throughout, with a trace of salt and soft fudge
    in the finish. The distillery is situated on the Spey at Caron and has a large
    dark grains plant attached.

    Drinking tip: At a shooting supper
