Destilleriets offisielle smaksnotater
|Lustrous antique gold. Light beading and texture||No or very little nose prickle; immediately deeper and richer than you might expect. Starts as creamy, nutty, vanilla toffee, crème brûlée perhaps, with syrup sponge in the background. Then fresher traces of fruit cake mix, or a bunch of sweet, ripe dessert grapes (each suggesting a little European oak) and apple dumpling, eventually becoming an entire fruiterer’s shop. Adding a good splash of water delivers a sweet and fruity nose; light, but with some depth. There’s a clear Speyside focus, with tinned fruit and an underlying rich, Christmas pudding-like maltiness.||Medium oily. Creamier with water. Warming at cask strength. Rich and nutty yet also dusty. Then, inturn: toffee, caramel, tangy fresh fruits; biscuit, short pastry, fig rolls. With water the mouth-feel is more soft and creamy and the taste is sweet throughout, suggesting hints of plum pudding and brandy sauce.|
|Ettersmak: Short. Dark, earthy chocolate and hints of tropical fruit. Later oak-dry on the palate. With water, some sweet cider-apple tartness and even more seductive, creamy oak.|
|Straw|| This one is just as powerful as the MC but there’s much less oak impact, the style being rather less 'concentrated’. Classic fruity Speysider, with quite some vanilla, walnuts, hazelnuts, fresh butter, fresh putty, vanilla fudge and many tinned fruits such as peaches and apricots. Orange cake.
With water: too bad, water brings out the oakiness, just like in the MC. A little more menthol, cough syrup, crème brûlée.
| Sweet, creamy, much in the style of the MC but a little wider, with more complexity. I like these herbs, this mint flavoured green tea, the lemon balm, the touches of mint drops, these faint fudgy notes… All good so far.|
With water: more of the same, which is great.
|Ettersmak: Long, with hints of caramel, Turkish delights and lavender sweets. Pine sap in the aftertaste as well as a little coffee and coconut |
Oppsummering: Just like the MC, it’s technically perfect but it’s also more ‘interesting’, with more dimensions and rather less oak influence despite this baby’s older age
