Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)

    Nose: extremely delicate at first nosing, with some superb notes of marzipan and whiffs of camphor and apple skins. Very subtle mix of peat smoke and grapefruit juice. A little tarry as usually but no brand new tyre this time. Really excellent, not much oomph but still a beautiful presence. Some hay. Gets peatier and peatier after a few minutes, and also quite waxy. Hints of diesel oil.

    Mouth: very sweet and very peaty attack, with a great body and a perfect mouth feel. Some liquorice, bitter oranges – not fabulously complex in fact but very compact and satisfying. Rather long finish with a little eucalyptus and some marzipan again. A splendid dram, no doubt. 92 points.
