‘If one can smell and taste history, this is it’
N: The orange oils are abundant, lemon too, vanilla, caramel, earthy coal - everything here has layers of dust and furniture polish notes, a sparking polish dust infused environment. Potting shed fruits, raspberries & black-currants, very thick in lemon and more lime sweetness. with a touch of garden chemicals.
T: Wood, roast lamb & mint sauce in vinegar, stewed rhubarb, cherries and crab apples. Amazing stuff, like a thick tincture or medicine rather than a whisky.
F: Takes a long time to unravel - shades of vanilla and fruits all infused in deep enriched oak. The finish is a culmination of oak roots and oak pickled berry fruits with a density like nothing ive tasted before
C: For a wood fan this is an extra ordinary experience. Like the G&M Linkwood 1953 WB, i haven’t got the vocabulary or experience to understand these complex taste and dense flavour profiles, many of which aren’t around today - but If one can smell and taste history, this is it.
