The nose was exotically fruity (perfumed pear, aromatic strudel) with traces of paint and flowers; we also got sandalwood, beeswax, Dundee cake and leather – just really nice. The palate drew exclamations – ‘Exactly what old whisky should taste like!’ – ‘But so easy to drink!’ – brown sugar sweetness, tart, tropical fruity flavours, tongue-tingling spice, dried fruits, Russian caramels and walnuts. With water, the nose evoked pineapple cubes in a lady’s handbag, sherry and chocolates – rich and elegant. The reduced palate – sugar and spice and all things nice – how could this juicy, fruity essence of perfumed sweetness come from something as simple as barley?
