Tasting Notes: Nose: No superficial aroma is required, no patch added, no dominant barrel! The aromas flow naturally and, of course, from the glass into my nose. First, an ultra complex citrus note strikes that I seldom had in this complexity and ramification! Slightly waxy, in fact, somewhat reminiscent of Brora, dry, elegant. Although it also shows vanilla, which appears perfectly integrated and very natural. Then a fragrant bouquet, but with earthy proportions, some linseed oil, milk chocolate and shortbread of the finest kind! Wiry minerality pervades the malt from start to finish!
Mouth: Great power without superficial alcohol! Fruity, sweet, with fine vanilla but also immediately with minerality, earthiness, beeswax and honey. But the malt is anything but a heavyweight, comes rather easily, at this level but also powerful, strong and totally consistent. Over time, then herbal tea, sweet mint and the finest vanilla pastry. A real step to the departure can not be noticed, everything goes seamlessly into each other, and so the malt disappears slowly and nobly!
Finish: See above!
Conclusion: What a nice whisky, art in the glass and in the bottle, elegant, understated and magnificent! https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/
