    Tasted on an evening of 30+ year whiskies. Nice introduction to this distillery to be sure.

    Empty Glass:  Almost a hint of brine here now,
    cooked dough and hints of preserved lemons.  Fruity wood peeks through
    and supports a soft oak char note.

         In case you might have missed it, I rather enjoyed this malt.  The fruits, oiliness and malt cream were so good... I just wish I
    had more of this. The odd spice notes seem to support the fattiness of
    the dram and drive the finish of for quite a long time.
    • Nose
      Oily fruit salad!  Fatty and bitter lemons, rich fruits and sharp oak. 
      Spicy notes of chili and grapefruit.  The wood spice and malt sweetness
      are muted to begin.  Adding water drive the fruits to insane levels and
      mutes the thickness of the dram.
    • Taste
      Meg Ryan shouting yes, yes!  Soft and sweet to start, then the tempo
      picks up!  Rich malt traverses into very fruity notes.  Soft oily
      thickness carries vanilla cream across and then shoves a bunch of spices
      into your face (cardamon, fenugreek, and Ceylon cinnamon). Towards the
      end there is a salty note and more rich waves of malt.
    • Finish
      Intense, rich and almost drying.  Milk chocolate and sharp oak play
      together on an oily creamy bed.  Very rich malt with more surprising
      fruits dot the finish.

    Nice expression by Adelphi, touch of "bitter lemon" :) - very fruity...
