Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

Nose: a little closed at first, but some fantastic notes of vanilla cream mixed with fresh mint develop after a few seconds… Lots of cooked cabbage and rubber/latex too. The latex gets then bolder and bigger. Quite some smoke, tar, roasted peanuts, omelette. Perhaps just a little sulphury. So special – and beautiful. Some nice grassy notes arrive after a moment... Wow!    

Mouth: what a punch! Dried tropical fruits, bacon, caramel, heather honey. Lots of tar, burnt cake etc. Hints of flowers jam, nectar… Stunning and extremely interesting. The casks must have been something! Top quality! The precursor of the a’bunadhs? In any case, this one is aromatically bolder and more complex than all a’bunadhs, in spite of its lower alcohol level. Just great! 91 points.
