this young Tullibardine. There's a lot going on here and adding some
water is a very interesting tool to play with identifying various
aromas. Very nice!
I thank Thorsten Manus and Whiskymax for the sample.
Lovely aromas of yellow fruit, along with gooseberry, pear and lots of
delicate vanilla. A touch of floral honey is coming through complemented
by subtle spice. Needs time to develop its full flavour spectrum.
Fuller than the nose with a very pleasant taste of ripe yellow fruit,
gooseberry again along with lingering banana. Powerful spiciness on the
midpalate with cracked black pepper and oak spice. In the end, lingering
fruitiness takes the upper hand and sticks pleasantly on your tongue.
A medium to long, sweet and warm finish. Gets drier in the end with a touch of bitter orange peel. Very mouth-coating. WITH WATER: Oh yes, there's more creaminess on the nose. The sweetness
is still present with a touch of sour fruits (red currant) coming
through, complemented by crisp vanilla and lingering peppery spice.
Water tames the fruitiness/spiciness a bit on the palate. Sweet and very
