Cask No. 66.168  

Wafts you to heaven

Highland, Eastern

The nose carries wood smoke, delicate as moonlight, clean as crystal; behind that fine-spun smoky veil, we identified sugary espresso, ginger biscuits, sweet aniseed, sweetie necklaces, Pandrops and orange oil smeared on leather. To taste, the smoke seems wonderfully mature, accompanied by sweetness (chocolate wafers, red onion jam) that turns to gentle spice – cinnamon balls, clove rock and Oddfellows. The reduced nose is smooth and sophisticated – muted smoke, chocolate Brazils and raspberry ice-cream at the seaside. The palate is just so easy – a swirl of silky sweetness entwined with a twist of unassuming spice, all wafted to heaven on a billow of delicate smoke.
