- Bottle # 2528 sold empty at ebay.
- Pretty good, drinkable
Very lemony, green fruits, leafy, little grassy, honeydew, wet hay. heather - not bad
Very punchy, fruity, subtle sweetness, yellow fruits, apples, peaches, hints of black tea, cold cigar
Long, burning, more black tea - water recommended
Wide. Pungent. There's a mix of sweet and sour here, with a touch of smoke and herbal peat.
Very salty. Smoke. Grass. Not bad, but not very cohesive. All over the place with water.
Long, but not impressive. As with a lot of these high proofed Rare Malts from "lesser" distilleries, they are pretty good, very intellectual, but not very enjoyable, and therefore not something I would reach for often.
- The Whisky Show Old & Rare Glasgow 23 - 24 February 2019
Beeswax, yellow apples, dried apricots. Fog, wet autumn leaves. Dandelion. Camomile tea. A touch of coconut milk.
Oily, spicy. Butter biscuits, black pepper, a little chili. Olive oil. Baked pumpkin with caramelized walnuts and some sage.
Wonderfully heavy sooty sweetness, metallic accents, freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, subtle herbal tones, ferns and increasingly honey-king. Typical inverness style. With water: saltier, noticeably citrus-toned and grassy. Later again honey.
Extremely oily onset, waxy aromas, honey-like sweetness, salt, some soot, metallic accents, oak and earthy ginger note. In the background lemon juice and grass.
Medium. Honey-coated nuts, metallic aromas, salt, grassy accents and hints of valerian and cough syrup.
- Body: Dry, firm chewiness.
Vegetal. Peppery. Aromatic.
Flavor development. Medium dry. Sooty. Smoky oaky. Sappy. Orange pith and zest.
Surprisingly lively, spicy. Faintly medicinal.
