This malt is quite a rich amber colour, hopefully natural coloured. The nose on this is all about the vanilla, but a few other smells are present including linseed oil, olives and some new leather.
There is a pleasing light oiliness to the mouth feel of this dram, mouth coating without being weighty. More vanilla but it’s less dominant than on the aroma, some malt, oats, and more of the leather and linseed. The finish is of moderate length and much of the interest dries up quickly for me, maybe a hint of coffee bitterness?
Overall this is a very quaffable malt ideal for a summers evening, not that we get many summery evenings here in Northern Ireland, possibly one reason why this bottle is not opened more often...
