Expert Senior Jimjam Tasting note

Jimjam gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Chalk, hay, gooseberry, peach, coconut, icing sugar, light sweet honey. Slightly spicy, and with a stone-y minerality

Taste

Fruits as the nose, malt and cereal notes, honey, and a pleasant bitterness

Finish

Long: limes and honey, with some spice

Comments

An inactive cask gives a spice and a slight bitterness to offset the Lowland-style fruit. Enjoyable and rare.

Cadenhead's tasting notes:

Nose Sweet honey and vanilla. Pineapple and coconut with growing creamy cereal aromas

Palate Slightly drying then becoming sweet and creamy. Nougat, strawberries and some malty notes

Finish Grassy and limey and velvety smooth
