Tasting notes by Serge Valentin, WhiskyFun.com 87/100

Colour: white wine.

Nose: we’re close, very close to the 1992 by BBR, minus the anchovies and plus an even bigger fruitiness. We’re really in a western orchard here. Also a little yoghurt. With water: no changes. Maybe a little chlorophyll?

Mouth (neat): creamy mouth feel and some crystal clean apples, pears and gooseberry juice plus a touch of custard and maple syrup as well as a little liquorice wood from the, err, wood. Simply good. With water – although water isn’t needed: nope, that wasn’t quite needed, nothing more happens. Wait, maybe more pineapples?

Finish: medium long, fruity, with something slightly tropical. Pineapples again?

Comments: just excellent despite a slightly ‘middle-of-the-road’ fruity profile. A very natural old Speyside.
