Cadenhead's tasting notes:
Nose: Initially grassy giving way to white pepper; hints of soft leather and hints of orange zest. Palate: Toasted oats and raspberries with white chocolate. Lemon cheesecake with soft golden syrup. Finish: Pistachio nuts; distant lime; soft spice and slightly drying.

I’m a bit late again. Colour: straw. Nose: more or less the same whisky, but out of some fresher wood this time, which changes almost everything. Butter croissants, custard, pumpkin seeds, mirabelles, maple syrup, barley, sweet bread… All fine. And behind that, these nice gravely smells that are much nicer in this kind of context. With water: grassier, and more austere. More akin to the ‘Rare Find’ (yeah yeah). Mouth (neat): punchy and rather sharp at first, a tad fizzy, with some sparkling lemon juice and then more barley-y notes. Quite some porridge and a general feeling of… the Lowlands. With water: more roundness again. Limoncello with a little basil and lemongrass. Spread on sushi! Finish: rather long, green, grassy and rather spicier. Comments: really fine. Some could think it’s a Bladnoch.
