Interesting stuff. Hardly glorious but unlike any other single malt around with an astonishing array of flavours and mood changes.
10 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Typically heady and sweet. Soft ginger and mint make for a complex and attractive nose.
Palate: Surprisingly light at first, then fattens with a malty, slightly bitter oiliness.
Finish: A better balance of oak and malt as the vanilla punches in.
Comment: Interesting stuff. Hardly glorious but unlike any other single malt around with an astonishing array of flavours and mood changes.
Nose: Tropical fruit. Water melons. Orange flower water.
Palate: Pleasantly oily. Very light-tasting at first, but with some flavour development. Honeydew melon with ginger.
Finish: Spicy, warming, long, soothing.
Comment: Very scenty and sweet. A restorative. Perhaps after a bath or swim?
