Cask 35.320 Dandelion sauternes

A lovely and very classical example of this Elgin distillery. The neat nose suggested butterscotch, sweetened popcorn and crème brûlée. Beyond that we also noted flambeed banana, pineapple upside down cake, ripe mango, and floral bouquets with lots of pollen. Some water brought hints of youthful calvados, lime cordial, rose syrup and sweet sauternes. In the mouth we noted pink wafer biscuits, vanilla panna cotta with strawberry syrup and subtle notes of hazelnut butter and scone mix. Water brought out marzipan, eucalyptus, ripe melon and tutti frutti diluting juice.

Cask 18.48 Two for one

Initial nosing drew notes of cherry bakewells, hessian, toasted pecan nuts, red apples and old leather. A rich, but precise and spicy nose. Some water evoked notes of fig jam, peppery watercress, chamois leather, cured game meats and dried herbs, plus a wee saline tang of black olive tapenade. We agreed it was more complex with water. The palate when neat was wonderfully salty and earthy; lots of salted almonds, cellar mulch, pipe tobacco, walnut oil and dark chocolate. With water we found bitter citrus piths, apple seeds, toasted almonds, aged amontillado sherry and earthy black teas. This was matured for 12 years in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.

Cask 4.300 A horned beast

A bright and superbly chiselled nose that initially displayed lemon air freshener, green herbs, bouillon stock, ham hough terrine and English mustard powder heat. Unusually peated and powerful – even for this old Orcadian Viking! Water made it sharper, more bready, yeasty and directly on lemon juice. The palate displayed an immediate wealth of camphor and tarry peat. Chalky notes, beach pebbles, seawater, olive oil and gauze. Reduction brought herbal cough medicines, smoked teas, aniseed liqueur and beach bonfire smoke. Wonderful and evocative whisky. At 9 years of age, we combined selected casks from the same distillery. We then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks. Originally from refill bourbon hogsheads, this was further married in a first fill barrel.
