  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: It couldn’t be more 70’s G&M if it tried. Therefore we have apples, but soft sweet apples like apple snow [sprinkled with cinnamon], some clay notes [although Serge’s ‘putty’ is also spot on WF], a little paraffin, Guinness and plenty of cereal notes - but again, soft and soaked in sweet milk. It isn’t saccharin though, theres plenty of grassy/heathery freshness here and some dryish bracken too. Oak levels are charming, very pleased with the balance and harmony contained within. Great start.
    T: Light at first but becoming rapidly assured on delivery, evolving into a soft but full bodied textural delight that fully coats the tongue. As for the taste, its fresher than expected but soft once again, developing on a light oily, apricot jam with a grassy and a bitter, resinous, sawn-wood note. Theres a marked sour lull here as it takes a few breaths and collects itself up for the final wave.
    F: Theres a fresher momentum into the finish with heathery-herbal, apple pastries, vanilla candles and baby figs but unfortunately this all leads to my nemesis - metallic, vegetable-oily crisps, drats!
    C: This is my first Banff, so im off to a good start with a fine nose and textural palate but the rest unfortunately concludes with results lower than expectation.
