    Colour: Gold

    Body: Full

    Nose: Big. Ethereal fruit, creamy cereal, hot mashing grist, buttery and oily but amazingly fresh. Fresh and juicy fruit- Apricot, peach, orange, lemon, cream soda, fresh cream, strawberry laces, spearmint, an aromatic floral note, a mineral earthy note hinting at peat.

    Water: The mineral comes out a bit more- Stony, a bit of alcohol, vanilla, vanilla fudge, orange flesh, a little sappy green-ness. A little earthy perhaps with wet leaves, damp earth, wet wood, wool. It hints at peat without the peat, a little like an Octomore.

    More water: More fresh and creamy with lots of peach, apricot, elderflower and barley. More estery with tropical mango coming out after a bit.

    Taste: Light but aromatic floral arrival, orange blossom, then a huge building development going slightly hot, hot mashing, cereal, barley, barley sugar, wool, some mineral lemon juice. A big orange undercurrent. Raw and powerful.

    Water: Bigger arrival, spicy at first with orange and then citrus fruit with lots of lemon, intense amazingness, oh dear God, wow, some stony mineral, more juicy fleshy fruit developing- Orange, lemon juice, peach and apricot with raw barley going into the finish. Intergrated spice all the way. Raw perfection, very powerful stuff.

    More water: More gentle arrival, more orange, more floral with elderflower and more building spiciness-Some hot white pepper with more mineral stoniness.

    Finish: Long length. Fruity apricot and peach with cream soda and cereal.

    Notes: Distilled 23/11/2007, Bottled 16/02/2015. 7 and a bit years old, from a Virgin European Oak Cask? Barrel? Barrique? I'd guess a French wine barrique that was rescued before it could be used. Troon (Locally grown) Barley. 468 bottles. Barrel no. 14, warehouse 13, L2H.
