Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSome edgy pears with a strange oysterish undertone. Hm, difficult nose here. Coastal, salty, a bit strange but straightens up with time. Quite light mouth-feel, classic style. Kind pears, some vanilla, some malty sweetness. Quite short and slightly sourly at the end.
Craig DanielsRetasted 23 October 2013, score changed from 81 to 82. Nose: Sugared almonds, peanut brittle and some sweet, oily herby notes like in hand lotion. Palate: nutty, dry sherry, with a discernible touch of aspirin residue. Finish: wood bitters and toffee, some liquorice. Comment: It's a lively nose and the rest is good. I think the best descriptor is 'well integrated' and I know it's a Highland but I think it's more often identified as a Speyside, when tasted blind. The sherry treatment is subtle, but definitley discernible, especially in the palate. Pretty decent whisky.
