The second tasting confirmed the hints of cut grass, reminding a Lowlands, but a great complexity has been detected, and emphasised the very pleasant taste of this nice whisky who was judged too severely the first time.

The third tasting just confirmed the second one. This bottle is somewhere between a characterful Lowland and a slightly acid Speyside. A good bottle.

Cragganmore as well as "Signatory's Un-chill filtered collection" use to produce very great malts. This bottle is thus the exception confirming both rules...
Beside the white wine colour (like most of the bottlings in this collection) which could surprise less informed drinkers, the nose is also disappointing. The typical Speyside fragrances are not present. My first impression was that I was drinking some Lowlands whisky. The palate, not really frank, reveals a mix of light malt and citrus fruits. The whole "washed-out". A not really consisting finish, and that's it. A cruel deception. It is the first deception for this distillery as well as for the collection. This bottle deserves certainly a second chance...

At the fourth tasting, the quite discrete nose revealed some fresh cut grass notes along with more perfumed red fruit notes (red currant).
The palate, rather fresh too, follows precisely the nose impressions, fruity and relatively complex. Hints of red currants, with their typical acidity and raspberries (sweeter but with a richer taste).
A relatively short finish completes the scope with touches reminding the nose and mouth impressions. An amazing bottle, which seems to get better and better with time and aeration....

A first rather fresh and medicinal nose. Hints of ether behind floral notes.
In the mouth, the first acidity develops on something difficult to describe, some acid bitterness. Some fruity notes in transparency.
The finish is rather long and the same dominating hints are present, both bitterness and acidity.
