    • Nose
      grain whisky notes, solvent, nutty, dusty, lemon, wood polish, (hand balm), turning (a lot) sweeter over time. (86-88)
    • Taste
      oily, grainy, old wood, spices, tea. Greta mouthfeel & taste. (92)
    • Finish
      turning herbal & quite dry. (87)

    Very interesting Grain, which shines in addition to a clear and manageable, good impression in the nose on the palate with strength and there already leads to a great peppery finish. Very nice grain.
    • Nose
      At the last older Grains of the Cuttynotes I had always noticed at the beginning that they were already clearly recognizable as Grain at the first Nosing mE. I can not argue with this. Only after a few strokes with the nose does the grain note, which initially lingers in the background, counteract the rich vanilla aromas, but at no time does it displace the latter. A great composition. Initially perfumed, after a while drier, almost dusty, even this is meant rather positively in this case.
    • Taste
      After an initial solvent a little later, a force pin remarkable for his age, the vanilla flavors are more in the background, but an indefinable astringent note in the mouth. Out back some cayenne.
    • Finish
      Pleasantly long with an amazing peppery finish. Dryer than a Talisker, but as far as the pepperiness is concerned, surprisingly similar to younger Skye editions.

    Official tasting notes from Adelphi:

    An intriguing look at an extremely rare and mature single grain whisky from this famous northern distillery. 
    A mid amber colour with copper lights and a light bead.
    Alcoholic fruit salad to start, possibly even rum toft. Bags of coconut and caramel behind this, with a thread of linseed oil.
    The fruit salad returns, now as orange peel soaked in brandy or even Bourbon.
    A very thick mouth feel with milk chocolate and Highland toffee drying in the finish.
    Water introduces fresh oil paints and cigar box with memories of a warm summer.
