Nose: Fresh and unexpectedly smoky and kind of mineral, very flinty. Gets then a little grassier and waxier, with also notes of fresh fruits such as gooseberries and butter pears. Rather complex.
Mouth: sweet, thick, creamy and malty. Rather bold in fact, much more powerful than expected. Goes on with toasted bread, coffee, crème brulée... And then overripe apples, hints of redcurrants... Gets also maltier and maltier. It’s big whisky, a true Highlander no doubt.
Finish: Again, big whisky,
