Nose

Des fleurs séchées, du miel pétrifié, du caramel liquéfié. Du sirop de pistil (ça existe, ça ?). De la menthe fraîche après aération. Piouuuu quel nez !

Taste

D'une délicatesse extrême et d'une grande légèreté. Du miel, des jeunes fruits blancs et jaunes, et une légère poussière.

Finish

(très) courte. Une sécheresse boisée, et les fruits meurent vite.

Comments

Houuuu quel nez et quelle bouche ! Un vieux vénérable. Mais quel dommage que cette finale soit si courte et que les saveurs s'évanouissent si vite en bouche.

Cadenhead Notes:

Summer 2015 Small Batch a rare vintage from one of the greatest of all speyside distilleries.

Nose    Soft and juicy. Peaches, passion fruit, soft lime notes and also kiwi and watermelon. A great age whisky delivering a truly amazing nose.

Palate    More juicy fruits. For such a delicate whisky this feels very thick and rich. Olive oil, hints of Sauvignon blanc and lots of syrupy fruits coats the whole palate.

Finish    Dried citrus fruits with some soft woodiness. Creaminess grows but mingles with lots of thick tropical fruits. Another amazing rare vintage from our small batch range.
