    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1355
    • Nose
      Nicely melted, on the apple. Caressing, there is also apricot syrup. Of honey. A hint of smoke? More and more greedy.
    • Taste
      Consistent with the mouth, delicate and well spiced.
    • Finish
      Procession of spices. Beautiful persistence!

    Strong start on the nose and the taste, after these a bit fall back because the low ABV. But amount of it's a great whisky.

    On the nose, vague lemony scent that comes to raise the smells of glue, varnish, return of hay and spices.
    mandarin, lemon, cream ,, leather, candied.

    Nose: Sugar cookies. Soft florals and maybe some light tropical notes. A touch of spiced poached pear. Lemon meringue pie. A touch of key lime too. Vague smokiness (just from inner cask charring?). Some wax and a faint latex note hints at age. Allspice. Some grassy notes (or maybe hay).

    Palate: A touch of smoke right off. Some orange. Rather more tart than the nose hints at, but pleasantly so, like the effects of eating pineapple. Fruits in bread, maybe like hot cross buns. A little oily. Dry and oaky. Dries up and leaves a finish of grain, apple and oddly enough…a very mild fishiness. Reminds a little of a Rosebank or an anCnoc at the back end. The arrival is almost faultless, but it careens downhill fast. Easily salvagable through another sip, I suppose.

    Thoughts: Much more complexity on the nose than the palate. We’re just inches short of a great malt with this one. A little more cohesion on the palate and a slightly higher abv would have had this one rocketing into the lower mid 90s for a score. Even so…decent dram and a treat to taste a piece of history like this.
