Ettersmak: Ganske saftig og meget lang finish
Oppsummering: En meget, meget god whisky med perfekt balanse og kompleksitet, og det fra et destilleri jeg normalt ville hoppet glatt over. Her har de nok vært veldig heldige med fatene som har inngått!

Rich, deep amber with long-legged beading. Instant, rich and at first winey, with over-ripe fruits (apple, pear, plum and peach). Wonderful fruit acidity above a sweet, waxy layer, as with a cherry cake, marzipan, or stollen. Traces of summer gorse, coconut and an artist’s studio. With water, no nose-feel and a very light aroma to start; gentle, soft and alluring, lifting the artist’s studio and clean mineral salts whilst subduing the winey aromas in favour of lashings of coconut, caramel and toffee. Still enjoyable, but without its straight gravitas. Rich and oily. Smooth texture and clear American oak wood influences (coconut, vanilla), with a sweet taste overall. Initially quiet, cooling and oily, with oaky notes of varnish and wood shavings (as in a woodwork room). Some charring. The top notes are of ripe fruit with a suggestion of menthol. Cooled and simplified by water: minty and creamy at first, then cocoa and mint toffee to the fore.
Ettersmak: Medium, complex. Charredpaper, varnish. Drying oak checked by subtle, creamy vanilla. A note of powdered chocolate, in time becoming old brown sugar. Lighter and cleaner with water, with creaminess, gentle peppermint, white chocolate and pleasing, subtle oak

Full gold. Ah yes! Superb combination of sweet dried fruits with the softest spices and only hints of precious wood (thuja). Orange jam, figs, dried pears, cooked strawberries, very ripe mirabelle plums and apricots, almond oil, fresh putty, speculoos… Really beautiful.
With water: more oak, pencil shavings, sawdust… Before the fruits are back. Whiffs of raw barley.
Rounded, with a little more vanilla from the wood than in the nose but other than that it’s all on soft fruits and honey, overripe apples, a little cough mixture, marzipan… Quite perfect!
With water: hints of bananas, very ripe kiwis and mint-flavoured green tea.
Ettersmak: Not the longest but it’s very clean and pleasantly mentholated.
Oppsummering: A very easy, very sexy and eminently drinkable fruity Glen Spey. My new benchmark as far as that little-known distillery’s concerned.
