Tasting Notes by Dellnola
Nose: Chocolate covered nuts, vanilla, brine, salted nuts, blackberries, sea breeze, seaweed. Water brings out some citrus. Seems older than 18.
Taste: The nuttiness continues with Nutter Butters, sawdust, charred wood, and buttered toast. Very creamy and mouth-coating.
Finish: A tiny dash of peat and a great vanilla ice cream note with a bit of cinnamon at the very end.
This is quite a unique whisky and it's unfortunate that it doesn't get enough attention. Granted, I wouldn't call this the most complex whisky I've ever encountered, but it is of very high quality and it's very mature for it's age. It's obvious to me that the new ABV has elevated this malt tremendously. Go ahead and try it.
