    Cadenhead Notes:

    Summer 2015 Small Batch

    Nose    Raisins with fresh churned butter, pears and red apple skins. Some strawberry notes and very creamy.

    Palate    Some meat notes, parma ham and very herbal. Some coriander, black pepper and toasted fennel seeds. This palate builds before a fruity notes starts to develop.

    Finish    Lingering cold meat notes with lots of juicy fruits. A real summertime whisky with a rich sweet building fruity freshness.

    Quite different than the Diageo standard bottling. A whisky for which one should take his time, because he does not reveal his secrets so easily. Has proven itself as an aperitif before a summer salad.
    • Nose
      Interesting! Freshly beaten wood, resin, pineapple, ginger, notes of grain. With water wood, ginger sticks (partly covered in dark chocolate), a pinch of cocoa powder, tiny floral notes.
    • Taste
      Oops, it shows you exactly where to go ... peppery spiciness, chili and ginger. Freshly beaten wood, small herbal notes. Some water offers sweetish spices, as well as omnipresent ginger and cocoa. A touch of coffee beans with milk chocolate surrounded by a healthy spiciness of white pepper.
    • Finish
      Gets dry easily. Fresh oak, coarsely ground cereals, white pepper. With water a matte sharpness, reminiscent of cinnamon. Some cereal, a little malt. Slightly dry.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Cragganmore-Glenlivet 16 yo 1999/2015 (46%, Cadenhead, Small Batch)  Colour: straw. Nose: very interesting. This is obviously not heavily sherried, and while it starts rather gently – as many Speysiders would, on orchard fruits, sweet barley and honey – it really tends to become fatter and more herbal at the same time. Something camphory and eucalyptus-like, embrocations, liquorice… And even a fair deal of wood smoke, and perhaps even peat. Tinned apricots and mint oil. Interesting, really… Mouth: it’s really fat, almost thick as oil, with the texture of liquid honey. Some Ovaltine – which was expected – and some milk chocolate, on a solid herbal base that would involve mint, liquorice and eucalyptus again. I also seem to detect a little lemongrass. Finish: rather long, still fat, with the usual peppery side from the oak. Even a wee saltiness. Comments: really richly textured, this Cragganmore. Excuse me, Cragganmore-Glenlivet. And indie Cragganmores as are rare as Justin B. singing Johann-Sebastian B., so… SGP:452 - 87 points.
