Nose
Dryish. Faintly peaty.
Palate
Spicy and fruity. Very pronounced dessert apples. Lemons. Cloves also very emphatic.
Finish
Still dry, but nicely rounded.
Comment
This bottling strongly manifests the woody dryness that seems to characterise the whiskies from the Islay valley. Water brings out Strathmill's muscat note.

Nose
Mandarin oranges with a note reminiscent of rotting vegetable matter. Citrus and turnip tops: it's like one of my mother's less successful soups.
Palate
Hot and peppery – this needs lots of water. A dusty/flour sack note and those neeps again.
Finish
Malty.
Comment
Those decaying vegetables give this a really weird edge. Was the cask too close to the kitchen?
