N: Let me guess, Speyside? A touch of highlands too maybe as theres more floral than many other Speys and something industrial too like cleaning product which isn't altogether pleasant, but fortunately this subsides as some robust barley gets to work. Overall impression is - soapy, meaty, sour lemons over malt. Over time, opening up to reveal - popadoms, yeast, hops beer, peppery rocket, crisps but essentially this is a 'limes and lemons dram' with a light biscuit crumble topping.
T: Delicate, light oily spring water arrival quickly becoming an all lemon/lime affair with vanillas and caramel developing to create a sweet and sour buttery traditional lemonade mouthful.
F: The momentum of those sour lemons carries on through with some underlying soft wood and sweeter grain notes. A touch of salt and chalk, long finish.
C: Very similar to my Balblair '83 notes WB and at £60 at time of writing, this single cask bottling is looking rather sweet.. and sour.
