Speyside Distillery 1996 LotG WID: 87724
Abv. 54.3%, Bourbon barrel, 20 years
Nose: flowery and floral, blossom honey, elderflowers, spiciness and wood behind, shortbread biscuits, with some hand warmth more vanilla, great floral fruity nose
Taste: malty sweet, but with enough oak for neat strength on the tongue, a nice fruitiness that is rather set and less lively and floral, but now supplemented by some citrus notes
Finish: medium long with a distinct, but not overburdened bitterness
Conclusion: Not a bad cask and not a bad malt, but also no revelation. With a little air, the malt wins significantly.
