    'A Changeling'

    N: Begins like a familiar honeyed Speysider. An hour later and its as fruity as anything with a fruity [pear] putty base. Later on, the cereals take the lead.

    T: Tasty, solid, robust whisky yet there's a fragility, or at least theres a temporal quality - the profile changing by the minute.

    F: Hoppy raisins & buttery liquorice before the cereals bed in once again.

    C: Adding water doesnt kill it, it simply flattens it - reducing it to its cereal based origins. This started off like a Springbank [remember that Burgundy cask? WB], finishing more like a natural-style, malty Deanston! Guesses regarding age ranged from 15-27 years. Revealed: A speysider that features prominently [alongside Lagavulin] in the White Horse blend. I got the theme now - about time.
