From Serge Valentin's WhiskyFun:
Another one from this infernal new black series.
Colour: white wine.
Nose: as naked as possible, this baby's got neither vanilla nor any other kinds of 'oaky' aromas. So it's more or less barley eau-de-vie, with a lot of, well, barley, touches of moss, fern, tiny-wee touches of compost, apple peelings and gooseberries. Add to that a few floral notes, a little patchouli, pot-pourri, roses... And that's it. Interesting.
Mouth: same flavours, that is to say many apples and gooseberries, plus some lemon and lime. Add a spoonful of honey, a drop of amaretto and a little sugarcane syrup. Maybe a pinch of white pepper...
Finish: quite long, very zesty. Almost Littlemill-zesty, in a way. A little horseradish in the aftertaste. Comments: as I said, this is interesting. Fully time-matured, and certainly much to my liking, even if it wasn't totally heroic. SGP:641 - 87 points.
