Not the greatest malt I have tasted from this distillery but the finish saves it.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Feintiness on the nose which gives a fat and oily shape to the aroma. A sprig of mint and a dash of menthol combine with soft oak.
Palate: Dry, oily, feinty start with a surge of rich malt.
Finish: Sugared almonds and toast combine with the softest hint of cocoa. Long and oily but the highlight of the experience.
Comment: Not the greatest malt I have tasted from this distillery but the finish saves it.
Nose: Freshly-made toast. Brandy snap.
Palate: Candyfloss (cotton-candy). Powdered sugar. Turkish delight. Pistachio nuts. Banana.
Finish: Light but long. Lemony balancing dryness.
Comment: Very sweet. Definitely a dessert whisky.
