  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Thats smelling good. Rich, thick fusion of old style single malt gooeyness, aaah, Thats quite a combination of desirable flavours mixed into one moorish concoction. We’ve got dark red berry fruits, chocolate wood, a earthy-mineral-vegetal note bundle, frequent hints of coastal saltiness, curdled cream & sweet condensed milk [peat?], a dollop of HP brown sauce and fruity fudge, ooh yes, Every note has its five minutes. Its a bit hazy in places but i like it, theres a treasure hunt challenge here.

    T: Rather light arrival, no fruit here - its about the malt with touch of pepper as the body thickens to a cream, not much happening so far. Mature wood shows now, thats nice - unobstructed oak, thats rare. Ok, so this is a two horse race - a creamy malt spirit with bitter & vigorous oak. Doesn’t need water, gets quite big during development and a tad harsh.

    F: Wood turns splintery, spirity and bitter. Bitter, oaky, earthy, chicory conclusion with a chemical note at the tail. The caramel is miniscule.

    C: Its not often you come across a single malt so simple yet competent in showcasing its two most fundamental flavour components so fully, namely malt, spirit and oak which here are rather equally matched [one example though is Glen Scotia 1977 WB], Theres very little else is going on but hey, this one definitely passes the ‘I’m a single malt whisky’ test with aptitude. Can’t argue with that.

    Scores a B-
