- 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.
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.
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.
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.
