This is delicious, the nose is utterly outstanding and you can't help,but continue to over and over again smell this dram.
Massively privileged to,have have tried this thanks to Ansgar Speller (@ansgarspeller) and Thomas Speller (@thomas_speller) from the Whisky Speller blog
I spent 5 minutes sticking my nose in and out of the glass saying wow, the nose is creamy and sweet, smoky and gentle, there's, understandably, a spike of alcohol, citrus fruit peel and some crushed cornflakes and a hint of cold porridge
Creamy and sweet, fresh juicy sweet pears and a hint of pear drops, earthy smoke that pops in and out playing hide and seek, light and gentle considering the abv
Long lasting best smooth and sweet.
