6 in stock
Dried plums and apricots, clove oil and hints of cardamon
Raisin butter, vanilla, burnt sugar, sponge cake and butterscotch.
Big sweet finish, with grapefruit and rye spices
Nose – Beautifully sweet and ripe, full of fruit (orange, plum), petrichor and deep cask wax. Old, varnished woods, buttercream and cigar tobacco.
Body – Gentle and beautiful, apple pie (crusted brown sugar and French brown pastry), tobacco leaf and gentle rum notes.
Finish – The grain comes through in the finish, it’s medium length with apple juice, blonde wood and caramelised sugar.
A world class nose and delicious drinking, this is a fantastic grain.
Colour: gold. Nose: niiiice! Swiss cheese, leather, miso, vanilla, oranges, tobacco… It’s slightly fermentary, which is rare in grain whisky, but which I enjoy a lot. With water: peat smoke! Mouth (neat): right, can we please see the papers? Smoke, oysters, seaweed, soot, brine… Ha-ha-ha! With water: very good. And very smart. Finish: medium, sweet and peaty. There ought to be a rock and roll song about that. Comments: smokier than poor Ardbeg Blasda or Laphroaig Select! We wanna meet this cask… Well done Cadenhead, that was smart; and fun. Whisky as it should remain, light-hearted and rather made by rascals for us rascals (and affiliated scoundrels).
