A teasing nose and an assertive palate. A dash of water reconcile both.
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
64.17 – Oozes Juiciness, 1992, 16 Years Old
Nose: Grassy. Candied angelica. Candy floss. Sweet cereals. Granny Smith apple. Pleasant perfumy bouquet.
Palate: Silky feel but tangy. Wasabi. Lemon drop. Fresh but assertive.
Finish: Dry,still tangy. Dry almond (with bitter touch of the skin).
Comment: A teasing nose and an assertive palate. A dash of water reconcile both.
Nose: Grassy with the spicy sweetness of Edinburgh Rock. Needs a little time for the discreet secondary aromas to develop. Sugared plum,melon, greengage with touches of comice pear and elderflower.
Palate: A slightly soapy quality then the fresh fruits win out: raspberry. Dilute,the intense artificial quality remains,like a cheap teenage perfume.
Finish: Green and slightly hard.
Comment: Don't water. Decent aperitif dram.
