Nose

Nice but slightly synthetic pineapple aroma, white wine, peach-melba, honey 

Taste

pears and other green fruits, anis seeds, pine wood, faint plastics

Finish

Darkens and gets more bitter, angostura, burnt spice gets added.

Comments

Very interesting nose, which makes the taste and development a bit of a surprise. I have a hard time wrapping my head around this one, but points for making me want to try it again.

Sweet, candy, massive honey, nearly too much of it. Retaste is necessary, did not expect such a dram (25.08.17 - still incredible sweet, more malty, some herbs, quite all right but overall same rating)

Colour: a light flapjack

Nose: a gentle array of apples, toffee and all-spice with milk chocolate and a floral note. With the addition of water pears arise along with cinnamon, apricots, tablet and a refreshing vanilla.

Taste: light and classic Speyside with vanilla, caramel and more of the all-spice. Water produces dough, pears, cinnamon and a malty presence.

Overall: better than the taller previous bottling, this one is more polished and refined. Still, not hugely detailed or epic in nature. I can see this whisky finding favour with those new to whisky, or who prefer a Speyside apparel, or a no-thrills experience.

Sehr schönes Aroma: Eiche, Frucht, fast wie Birne, etwas Vanille. 

Taste

Auch im Geschmack dominiert das Fass. Frische Eiche, unbehandelt.

Finish

Im Abgang etwas würziger. Nicht allzu lang. 

Comments

Sehr netter Alltagsmalt.

Ein wirklich feiner Alldaydram. Sehr fruchtig und nicht kompliziert.
