A very pretty whisky.
1991, Aged 12 Years
Year of Bottling
Nose: Almost rum-like: light spirit allied with tropical fruit/melon/zesty notes. Opal fruits and lilac. In time a hint of crystallised ginger. Fades relatively quickly.
Palate: Plenty of (balanced) oaky notes. Quite a thick feel with fresh fruit all the way.
Finish: Just a touch metallic.
Comment: A very pretty whisky.
Nose: Fresh, fragrant. Light peatiness. Late hint of sweet seaweediness.
Palate: Complex. Lots of flavour development. Light oily hint of seaweed, passion fruit. Lively interplay of sweetness and saltiness.
Finish: Sweet mustard.
Comment: Savoury. Summery. A picnic malt. Or eating freshly shucked oysters with Jim McEwan.
