    Worth the chase



    Cask No.
    39.35




    "From the distillery which refused to remove the spider's
    webs when the still-house was refurbished in the 1930s, this is an
    interesting little whisky, which bares a more thorough examination than
    the initial light nose might suggest. The spirit's pale straw color is
    evidence of a refill bourbon. The nose is fresh, floral and dry almost
    lowlandesque in character with a plethora of subtle characters residing
    below the surface. Delve a little deeper and you will discover cereal,
    wax and a touch of smoke balanced with a little vanilla sweetness from
    the American wood. A little greenness edging towards brambles and wild
    mint then leads to a hint of gooseberries, stewed apples and an
    assortment of fresh soft fruits. The aromas are subtle, but worth the
    chase. Water softens the spirit - it becomes fatter and oilier releasing
    herbal and citric notes and a distant struck match. The flavour is
    sweet and fizzy (Refreshers - a flavour not uncommon in this malt) with a
    warm dry finish. A lovely little malt to drink in the sunshine." http://www.smws.co.uk/whisky/Worth_the_chase.html
