Do you like the moments, when you expect absolutely nothing and get a little more? They are wonderful, aren’t they?
It all starts a bit watery, dull, yet full of light character and a bit of everything: smoky peat, orange peel, hints of cereal and vanilla. All quite mixed up, making you try hard to find it.
The palate also seems quite dull, arrives immediately and gets quite spiky on your tongue, just like a fizz of highly carbonated water. Same pure smoke, flowery sweetness and lemon zest. Meanwhile, finish doesn’t give you anything beyond smoke and returning orange peel.
Returning to expectation talks: there is a little more than you can expect from a thing that is a little less than whisky. For single grains, the size of the latter ‘little’ is defined by distillers’ conscience and your personal fastidiousness: Girvan guys seem to sleep well, while today I was quite open for something light and simple. As a pleasing bonus, it was accompanied with good quality and quite a character.
