Words of whisky:
Nose: A good amount of vanilla custard and crème brûlée, as well as feint notes of lemon zest and maybe even some grassy notes. After a while more orchard fruits like green apple and honey. Also a touch of white pepper, followed by warmer spices like cinnamon. Even a whiff of wet pebbles.
Taste: Creamy and a sweeter arrival than expected. Notes of honey as well as some juicy stone fruits, but then a Pulteney-like spicy encore, which I totally love.
Finish: Soft spices and gentle orchard fruits. Finally some lingering grassy notes.
Simple, yet elegant and right up my alley. Precision distilling at its finest. I haven’t been as pleasantly surprised by a whisky in 2020 as I have been by the Kingsbarns Family Reserve.
