    These are the original tasting notes from distillery manager Stuart Thompson as they can be read on the website of Juuls Vinhandel (the bottler): http://juuls.dk/get/18578.html
    • Nose
      A heavy and lively mix of aromatics, this single cask reveals an amazing balance of rich savoury and sweet flavours, setting an expectation of depth and intensity. At full strength, the aroma is initially rich and raisiny with hints of fruit cake and coffee. Then rich beefy savoury flavours emerge wtih black olives, smoky bacon a hint of salami and rich peat oil in the background.With water: The aroma increases in aromatic oils revealing layers of lemon and lavender oil and aniseed. Beneath the oils, a soft creaminess is discovered with hints of peat and lemoncurd, reminiscent of eating a lemon meringue pie with a mountful of simmering cappucino coffee with cacoa powder on top.
    • Taste
      Taste: The mouth-feel is smooth and exceptionally oily and chewy with a lightly mounth-coating effeect.
      The taste is rich, sumptuous and full-flavoured revealing a beguiling mix of lemon oil and barley sugar intermingled with walnuts, treacle and dates. There is a big smoky middle which brings bourbon biscuits, cocoa and the flavour of coffee cake.
    • Finish
      Long and intriguing with lemon curd, olives and cocoa.

  3. Hering scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior
