Tasting Notes

Nose

Surprisingly pale for a 15 Years Old whisky. Quite faint at first then some smoke and soot. Dusty straw. Sweeter notes slowly emerge. Vanilla syrup with a touch of lemon. Almond milk (but more the almond of a stone fruit, prussic acid). Hint of yeast.

Palate

Sweet and smoky. Oily. Vanilla, lemonade. A slight fizzy feel. Sooty.

Finish

Sweet and sooty.

Comment

The cask was obviously not active. Not unpleasant but a bit basic. Might be refreshing with ice on a hot (Islay?) day.
