Review by Cardhu

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Golden honey.

Nose

At full strength, heady, nose prickle, pear drops and tightly integrated heather, resin and sweet honey-nut notes. Enticing. Intriguing. With a little water, still harmonious but less pronounced, allowing some malt-cereal, soft, spicy wood, moorland and faint traces of wood-smoke to appear.

Palate

Soft, pleasing, medium. Palate Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; short punch, sweet and fresh, then a pronounced drying effect. Enjoyable at any time, with little or no water.

Finish

Quite short. Some lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
