Official SMWS Panel Tasting Notes:
Upon first nosing, the panel noted hummus, bakelite, fennel and dried herbs. Then bigger notes of anthracite embers, brittle waxes, white pepper and canvas. We also found inky newspaper, white mushrooms and green apple. A big and rather old-school style whisky. Reduction brought cut grass, undergrowth, sun lotion, marzipan and sheep wool oils. Some vapour rubs and tiger balm as well.
The neat palate opened with ointments, mineral oils, sunflower seeds and cinnamon pastries. Thick, big, weighty and textural fun! Water brought out lanolin, cough drops, pine needles and warming peppery tones.
