    Amazing Single grain, Vanilla and nuts on the nose, Tauffy-Caramel with some raisins, followed by Spice. The last goes on for ever.. Same flavors as the North of Scotland with Spice added. My first love of Scotch.

    Truth be told, I expected more. Around 150 EUR.
    • Nose
      The nose is soft, grassy and smell of varnish. Light
      hints of honey and vanilla, but nothing much else. Rather closed nose, if you
      ask me.
    • Taste
      It is equally soft on the palate, again with varnish
      and grass, but now it shows a little more life. Some marshmallows and pineapple cubes. Honey, again. Pleasant but not
      very complex. On second sips, I get some pears and lavender. The spices start
      to speak as well. Aniseed and hints of white pepper. No water needed.
    • Finish
      The finish is short on aniseed and honey.

    Super sweet and super sophisticated. The narrow range of flavours in no way diminishes the drinking experience of this astonishing grain.
    • Nose
      An intense blast of toasted coconut and vanilla, custard creams, coconut mushrooms, vanilla fudge and maybe just a hint of something citrus. It has a depth and intensity that makes you want to sniff it for ages. All the grainy harshness has long gone and yet there isn't a hint of mustiness about it. Amazing.
    • Taste
      Butterscotch and vanilla essence. Like drinking lightly diluted golden syrup.
    • Finish
      Now there's a burst of spirit that gives life and sweet spices to the sugared sweetness.
