Trop de bois au nez, pomme, maïs. Bouche pomme, céréales, pointe de caramel. Finale moyenne épicée. Pas terrible.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Alcool moyennement intégré. Forte odeur de pomme verte, du bois et de la vanille. La cannelle apparaît au bout de quelques minutes. 

Taste

Plus sucrée : toffee, crème, pomme. L'ensemble est assez onctueux. 

Finish

Roulements de tambours : ................ pomme !

Et aussi un peu de caramel
Comments

Pas nécessairement un whisky plaisir. Ce arran, manque d'expression et est en dessous du Arran 1996-2012 Dewar Rattray.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

The nose starts of fresh with loads of white fruit, Jonagold apples in the lead. Very nutty on almonds and hazelnuts. Hints of gooseberries and lime. Coconut, even. Not bad and keeps developing in the glass. After a few moments, I get some creamy butter and cooked patatoes (good!) with some green herbs. This is of to a very good start.

Taste

Very creamy and round on the palate. White fruit and pepper at first. Softens up quickly and offers vanilla and honey next. Hints of banana liqueur, who would have thought? Frangipane cake. Nougat. A slight farmy touch all the way in the back. I quite like this. Does not need water, but takes it well.

Finish

The finish is medium long and spicy, but the white fruit remains the leitmotif.

Comments

Brachadair is a rising star, it would seem. Patrick sure knows how to select his casks. Just under 70 EUR, which is value for money if you ask me.
