SMWS 55.30 - Remarkable freshness, beguiling sweetness


Destilleri:Royal Brackla
Uafhængig aftapper:SMWS - Scottish Malt Whisky Society


Omtalt i Outturn maj 2015:

The nose had remarkable freshness to it – lemon, laundry, pine, menthol, pan drops and anise – it also had Battenberg cake, buttery toffee, toasted marshmallows and coca-cola. Adding water, we found Lady Grey tea, orange, elderflower, marzipan, ginger cake and ‘a eucalyptus forest in Madeira’. The neat palate had beguiling sweetness – toffee, honey, shortbread, Eccles cake, chocolate and coconut, but with gingerbread, liquorice, sandalwood, marmite, tarragon and mint to balance it. The reduced palate was certainly tasty – tutti-frutti ice-cream, spun sugar, rum and raisin, raspberry, pineapple and vanilla flavours and more; underneath that – menthol, nutmeg and tobacco hints swirled and twirled.(101 words)
