Words Of Whisky
Impressively, there’s pretty much nothing to fault here. Dornoch Distillery’s inaugural release is objectively excellent.
A touch of aceto balsamico and crème de cassis combined with cocoa powder, rum raisins, sultanas. Strong notes of dried oats and barley husks, with a whiff of rhubarb and warm apple compote as well. Finally, just a whisper of melted butter, chalk and cinnamon. Really rather impressive.
Super creamy mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate truffle on a backbone of gentle cracked black pepper and potent notes of raisins, with a touch of roasted marshmallow. Some subtle notes of peanut skin in the background. Water activates the oak tannins.
A tad drying and lingering spices with a whisper of rye bread. Finally a touch of tobacco leaves and a slight ashiness. Medium in length.
