Tasting Notes
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Light gold with a hint of sunshine - Nose: Malt and oaky wood, turning really quite leafy after 2-3 minutes. Also some hints of slightly floral hay. - Palate: Initially very creamy mouth-feel, then leafy with some light liquorice. - With 4 drops of water: Lots of leafy wood on the nose, whereas the palate is less leafy, smoother and with more fruitiness (apple & pear). A light toffee element suggests toffee apple. - Finish: Long. - Overall Impression: A very interesting change when the water is added, making it much better in my opinion too. ** 79 points neat, 82 points with the water added. ***
