It's the starter whisky in a small grain tasting:
Part 2 of 4 Invergordon 1988 cwc 46.3% 26yo,
Part 3 of 4 Cadenheads creations 26yo light creamy vanilla
Part 4 of 4 North British 26yo 50.6% whiskybroker
After 30-45 minutes of oxidation in the glass:
Without water it's sweet, very sweet. Light. Vanilla, Macaroons on the first nose. There is still that hint of glue but not a lot. it's gentle on the nose.
With water it gets a little heavier on the nose. More fruitiness comes through.
Without water: Light bodied, sweet and watery, loads of vanilla and light fruits. Soft edges. Almonds, slight bitter note. Lemons and i think a hint of orange peel or something.
With water it is getting less watery and gets more creamy. Still the almonds and some clove.
Sweet, grainy and woody. It reminds me of autumn. Vanilla and a hint of clove.
With water there's a little dry nutty note coming up and also some white chocolate
