A good example from a shamefully overlooked distillery.
1989, 13 Years Old
Nose: Very pretty, lightly floral. Cut grass, lemon peel, Edinburgh rock, sweets, coconut cream. With water, spikier and a hint of immaturity.
Palate: Clean and crispier than the nose suggests. Fresh flowers, light summer fruits. Floats over the palate. Fragrant and attractive.
Comment: A good example from a shamefully overlooked distillery.
Nose: Light, dry, lime peels?
Palate: Light, dry. Petal-like. Green. Chlorophyll. Some late vanilla. Herbal.
Finish: Dried out. Drying.
Comment: Tired and irritable when first poured, but gradually opens up, more so when water was added.
