    N: The comforting easy profile of, say, [a fluffy-ish] Tomintoul against the edgy nature that is Speyside Distillery, is the juxtaposition by which this relaxed yet engaging presentation sits. With that relaxed yet defined dunnage-y/grassy butternut squash-sweet-citrus nose with lightly peppered malty-light lager-beer tones, this is perhaps most likened to Glen Grant 10 though other similar [Speyside] malts at a similar age may easily apply. Just so, this is an ideal outdoor dram on a sunny-ish [Sunday] afternoon.

    T: Refill bourbon casks, eh? You can’t beat ‘em! Being only a little [grapefruit-citrus pith] sharp/edgy/dry on arrival, we are soon on a reliably familiar well-trodden barley-led citrus-sour developmental path towards [only slightly coppery] honeyed buckwheat-putty-mash into,… 

    F: ,… a [grapefuit-cellulose]-weighted, short-medium mashy fungal beer/wash finish, a touch metallic,.. the fusty savoury-sweet n sour barley & citrus [German savoury bakery~cider/icing?] quality ever the mainstay focus, whilst the frequent threat of heat never materialises.

    C: An independent release that Strathmill [& Glencadam] fans may enjoy, one that gives the current official range [WLP] more than a run for its money.
