I did a tasting session (while watching Liverpool v Everton) last weekend comparing this malt with Glencadam’s 15 year. These malts are very similar weights and ages, matured in largely if not exclusively plain wood and both purport no colouring and non-chill filtered so I thought it would be an interesting comparison.
This is a very pale malt, almost colourless in good light, not very inviting, but the nose immediately grabs my attention (more so than the match in fact) white wine, cream and subtle citrus, quite a pungent blend. The palate is nicely weighted with the main themes of creamy white wine flavours continuing with a touch of aniseed thrown in. A pepperyness develops towards the finish which is long and creamy with some slight bitter almond at the death.
A touch of class, like Gerrard’s free kick which gave Liverpool the lead.
