Some Benrinnes-Linkwood-and-Clynelish-driven juice (the Elixir folks would approve), that should be westerly fruity indeed. Colour: straw. Nose: a fruity malt with a stronger backbone than usual (flints, wax, tiny touches of smoke), with apples, gooseberries, green pears, plums and just a touch of pre-Brexit Middle-European eau-de-vie (Zwetschke and compadres). Mouth: it is coherent, even tarter now, very fruity, a little 'green' indeed, with granny smith, kiwi, apples, greengages… You wouldn't claim you do detect the individual components, but I believe we've tried some Benrinnes, some Linkwoods or some (young) Clynelishes that were like this. That is to say very good. Finish: medium, fruity, with a grassier coating, as usual. Maltier aftertaste. Comments: not a fruit bomb, but indeed you would imagine you're wandering throughout an orchard after a good summer rain (as the sun came).
