Crushed hazel and Brazil nuts, a slight swimming pool note, a little sun cream (where is this coming from?) some spiced blood orange and do I detect a faint whiff of peat smoke… so faint, it's almost like vanilla pipe tobacco.
Intensely dry, with some bitter chocolate, a little lavender, marzipan and cola cube sweets.
Orange zest, some dark Seville orange marmalade and a ton of oak round out this whisky, falling just short if its fifth decade.
Not without merit, but just not quite as exciting, or engaging as the previous whiskies.
