Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.
This dram was a little different form my normal stuff as it was a blind tasting! The whisky sample came from a company called Wishky and was used as part of a Twitter tasting which you can read all about here – #wishkyhour It was great experience being able to taste a whisky with no notion of what it was or any preconceptions of what it might taste like.
Sweet, honey, floral, fruity (apple), fresh and light, citrus.
Vanilla, slightly bitter and a touch of smoke, spice, moving to light and fruity with definite blackcurrant (Strong Ribena!) and a touch of honey again.
Fruity, creamy and sweet honey.
I love a smoky dram and this is not that…. however I really enjoyed it none the less! Sweet and fruity with some nice depth to it to keep it interesting. At £35 a bottle I really cannot fault this and I’d happily part with my money to buy a full bottle. I do wonder what it would be like tasting it now I know what it is though…

Appearance: Gold in colour.
Nose: A big, crisp, dry and very aromatic nose with hints of heather and peat.
Body: Smooth, light to medium body.
Palate: Smooth, soft and lasting flavours of heather-honey sweetness and vanilla followed by deeper citrus-fruit flavours and hints of malted bread.
Finish: Long, lingering, surprisingly intense finish that starts sweetly, then gives way to smoke, peat and malt.
