My tasting notes:

  • Appearance Manzanilla (2/20) large, oily tears and thick legs.
  • Nose Peated eucalyptus and menthol, weird pineapple and lime backnote, Edinburgh rock, mineralic and fruity, lemon sherbet, smoked haddock/kippers.
  • Taste Odd lime zest and peat, cereal and chewy caramel emerge too plenty of spice, white pepper, peppermint, mentholic, eucalyptus, floral gorse, cleansing in a medicinal/dentistry sense
  • Finish Long, ozone, seashells, coastal and medicinal peat.
  • Overall A hint of Lindores Abbey florality peeks through here but most of this spirit reveals cask-led flavours, coastal, lime and peat perhaps even a Kildalton malt was previously in this cask?

Score 82/100
