    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 266  bottles from cask 5343

    We are not allowed to name this distillery, although we have no doubt that you will identify as one of the big four in Kildalton Parish! It comes from a refill hogshead and has an attractive 18CT gold hue. The first nose is deep and sweet – Highland Toffee, but also glace fruits. There is a slight but not sharp nose-feel. After a while the scent of an extinguished fire made from resinous and slightly tarry pine logs is apparent. Water moves the smoky notes forward, and changes the scent slightly towards smouldering tractor tyres. It also introduces a light antiseptic note, like dentist’s mouthwash, which becomes bath-salts as it develops. The flavour is big, full and rounded: sweet to start, some acidity, masses of smoke in the finish. A fine example of a magisterial malt!
