Personal Comment
A floral nose with hints of vanilla, some honey behind quite a peppery impression. A smell of musty wood completes the whole. In the palate, nice acid bitterness, an explosion of complex tastes, complex even if remaining in the woody register and a nice acidity (nice for those who appreciate acidity in a whisky). The mouth presents quite a contrast with the nose.. The finish is long, marked by woody bitterness and coffee notes.
Pleasant fruity complex nose with both vanilla and mint hints. Very fresh and both smooth and spicy.
The mouth is cast in the same mould. Fruity notes mixed to pleasant chocolate notes give it a nice complexity.
Nice finish too. Mix of cocoa smoothness and beautiful citrus fruit touches.

Personal Comment
The very first nosing makes obvious this is a Speyside whisky, with some peat hints mixed with ripe fruit notes, on a peppered malty background. In the palate, the spicy character is slightly dominant, but lets the other rather complex tastes develop. The finish is rather pleasant, however a bit short. One more reason to regret the disappearance of the Inverness distilleries.
The rather discrete nose, marked by ripe fruits (pear) is quite fresh and pleasant. In the palate, a pleasant spicy impression, on a slightly acid background precedes a finish of medium length with hints of malt and spices.
Quite a pleasant but rather discrete nose with nice floral hints and a touch of hay even if the dominant smell is a persistent malted barley hint.
The palate is marked by vanilla and some hints of ripe peach with cereals on the background, Pleasant but rather simple on quite a monotonous palette.
The finish perfectly prolongs the mouth, pleasant and without any flaw but without any daring touch nor depth neither.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
