Color
Pale gold
Nose

Quite unusual nose with notes of varnish striking first, followed by grain and oak wood. Initially it is slightly mineral, but opens up on vanilla, coconut, pears and later on more green elements appear, flower stems and grass.

Taste

More on tropical fruits than the nose, mango, passion fruits, oranges. Very creamy, vanilla, crème brûlée.

Finish

Medium length, the fruitiness continues and fades gently accompanied by a touch of oak wood.

Comments

Not my favourite profile, but certainly it is good stuff.

Nose

Très frais, des jeunes fruits encore verts. Floral aussi, mais de façon assez timide. Un nez assez différent des Littlemill que j'ai l'habitude de fréquenter.

Taste

Du sirop de poire, de la confiture de pamplemousse, de la pelure de banane verte.

Finish

Longue. La fraîcheur revient en bouche. Des picotements d'épines d'arbuste sur la langue. Un bois léger apparaît.

Comments

Un excellent whisky, même si je le trouve sur un profil assez éloigné des marqueurs habituels de la distillerie.

Cadenhead's tasting notes:

Nose: Coconut creams. Vanilla custard, gooseberries and artisan white chocolate flakes
Palate: Almonds and peaches with lychees, races of fresh oak. Becoming much creamier. A rich classic Lowland that covers the whole middle palate.
Finish: Clotted cream, lemon icing and then juicy mandarins give the finish an amazing rich smooth complexity that makes you want more
