Destilleriets offisielle smaksnotater
|Pale gold. Medium beading||At first, clean and light, with mild nose-prickle. Creamy-soft and juicy; notes of ripe pear, with a trace of spearmint. Then more sweet fruit (honeydew melon, old orange peel). Next, the sweetness grows slightly thicker; as with an apricot pastry, or boiled sweets. Also, there are some fresh, herbal notes. Adding water brings up the sweet, fresh fruit in a refreshing, classic fruit salad. There are hints of banana and more boiled sweets (pear-drops and sherbet lemons) in the development.||Tart and fruity. Scented and floral (driedgrass, roses). Minty. Gloriously smooth full mouth-feel with water. Lightly sweet, then crisp acidity; delicate fruits (apple, pear, banana, lychee) in a light sugar syrup. Slightly fizzy on the tongue; lightly mouth-drying.Very slightly oily|
|Ettersmak: Quite short, sweet, and slightly lemony. Later, cleansing and slightly drying, like a gingery lemongrass cordial. Add water and it’s smooth and clean, with some spiciness and a lingering taste of now chewy fruit sweets (green apple flavour).|
|White wine|| Not too powerful but extremely fresh, ueber-clean, starting on freshly cut apples and just touches of vanilla custard. Maybe a tad shyish but other than that it’s really like a walk through an orchard, if you see what I mean. No grainy, porridgy or yeasty notes in this one. The vanilla and notes of fresh oak tend to grow a tad bigger after a few minutes.
With water: more on plums and other stone fruits. Whiffs of bubblegum, strawberry sweets, jellies… Very, very discreet soapy oak in the background, paraffin.
| Fruitful and youthful, staring all on pear drops, lemon drops and even tinned pineapples. Again, it’s powerful but not overpowering. Gets then even more lemony, almost limey, grassy, kind of acidic in a nice way. Quite sharp, far from the ‘gentle’ Lowlands style.|
With water: good, easy, fruity profile, quite responsive if you see what I mean. Likes to play with your palate. A lot of lemon and tangerines.
|Ettersmak: Rather long, more on lemon zests and green wood, sorrel, raw spinach… Very zesty, in a fairly unusual way |
Oppsummering: It’s not the most complex whisky ever in my opinion but I like the fact that it’s relatively close to a famous neighbouring colleague: Rosebank.
