The balance is perfect, there is nothing out of place, an example of perfection from the best of the 3 closed Inverness distilleries.
If you see a bottle of this my advice is buy it , even if you have to go into debt and starve for it.
Awesome and beautifull and the 40% strength really underlines the fact that a perfect cask is good at any strength
Slightly distant but its nice for sure and the first think I detect is blueberry which if I find in sherried whisky is always a good sign for me. Lots of dried fruits in the mix, and fruit cake, juicy currants and raisins, a very faint glue note but thankfully I do not think it detracts and then another wave of fruits, dark fruit gums basically, very nice.
Oh yes, this is good, there is a nice dose of spice, I also detect some peat, the dark fruit gum taste is definitely here and yes blueberry and bilberry, great stuff.
The spice note seems to grow , as does the peat but the fruit is between them adding great balance.
Some cake mix enters the fray, burnt orange and just a hint of wood.
Excellent, I think I am love again, this has given me my whisky mojo back.
Good medium length, remaining spicy, slightly peaty and very fruity ( dark fruits)
