Nose: Wow. That is a thing of beauty. Rich. Lots of older grain notes going on here. Starts with the signature nail polish remover , acetone and vanilla with coconut oil. Further inspection and nosing reveals fruity notes of exotic fruit : maybe mango and ripe melon. Hedonistic. Isn’t it?
Palate: Sweet and spicy on entry. Pepper and ginger on one side and creamy vanilla on the other. Rich sweet and coconut-y. There also sweet dough and acetone notes and the exotic fruit are here to stay. Delicious and complex. More cereals and even some apple Peel make up this rich and hedonistic palate.
Finish : Long. Spices , coconut and vanilla. Ginger bread. Butterscotch. Very nice.
This is a cracking and complex whisky, showcasing how good grain whiskies, when aged well, and blended well , can be. A worthy 15th anniversary celebratory dram. Highly recommended. Good work, again by John Glaser
