Comments

Sehr eigenständig und überraschend oldschoolig für einen jüngeren Malt, aber ziemlich geil, selbst die Pappe am Ende

Suprising smell of citris lemonade as I only know from older bottles. Very interesting!
I always thought a taste like this was only possible as a result of bottle aging.

Pale gold
Nose

Oily, fruity - apple(sauce), some mint and basil. A typical dirty Ben Nevis edge, sweet barley and some pepper. Water kills the whisky.

Taste

Malty, pepper and again a bit dirty. Fruity, chocolate and leather.

Finish

Medium drying with spices and bitter fruits - grape fruits. Dark chocolate and white pepper.
