Nose
Restrained at first. A bit of fruit mingled with cereal. Tangerine, dried apple. And an unusual wet chalk note. Then a mustardy note which evens reminds of wasabi. Distant brine and smoke.
Palate
Crisp and prickly. With a yeasty taste. Really close to beer. Weird. Sour and tangy also. Faint butterscotch flavour in the back. Hint of smoke.
Finish
Dry, spicy and quickly fading.
Comment
I would never have thought this is a 30 Years Old whisky. Very weird aromatic combination. Water brings them all together in a toffee tone.

Nose
A little held back and shy, does not give much away other than a warm bread and water biscuit note. Then smoke arrives, like clothes in a cupboard after party. Some citrus notes.
Palate
Dry and a little sherberty. Proving sourdough bread, a slight bitterness, but then sweetness and spices start to build. The smoke is still here but only just.
Finish
Short and brief.
Comment
Another shy whisky, this has its lovely side, the palate is very full and intriguing.
