This scotch caught my interest the second it's aromas found my nose. Let's begin there; Nose: Rich buttery sweetness, heavy like fruit cake/hold the fruit. There's no doubt that this is a single malt scotch, fresh Scottish air carries the aromas of the surrounding sea. Unique and antique, it's nostalgia without the memory. There is some char from a distance. Palate: A smooth leather belt dusted in cardamon, dried cloves with a mist of dark sweet rum, so subtle. A hard burnt caramel develops but seizes to fresh oak. That char in the nose still lingers through the palate. Finish: That fresh oak remains present, calm and steady until it is washed over by mild sweet tea. Char has faded. A slight vanilla visits, but a little too late. Did I forget the body?: Light but oily. The oil sits through the entire experience. I would have loved to share the colour of this one but I am sitting in a dark room and my eyes couldn't serve it justice.
I really love this scotch, very original.
