  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A nice fruity summer on the terrace
    • Nose
      ripe pears, white mountain peaches, apricots, white grapes, vanilla, straw in the summer heat - with a little water you smell a freshly baked juicy apple pie
    • Taste
      Ripe red apples, honey, toasted bread, peaches, oak and nuances of mint - with water appears more oak and a slight bitterness
    • Finish
      Fruity, dry, slightly bitter notes, rather short to medium long

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Gold tiara

    The nose was mainly sweet and fruity – sweetness as in Blackpool Rock, candy floss, pineapple cubes and Irn Bru; fruity in the form of nectarines, apricots, maraschino cherries, Appletiser and peach and blackcurrant crumble; we also found new shoes, ladies perfume and warm hayfields. The palate was rather delicate – plentiful sweetness (chocolate, runny honey, Flumps, Refreshers, cherry Tunes, crème brûlée crust) and wafts of mint leaf. The cask influence held it down like guy-ropes restraining a balloon – balsa wood, waxed wooden furniture, oak shavings, aniseed and coconut. A delicate, refreshing dram, with just enough wood ballast to stop it flying away.
