In other words: Glenesk. Colour: gold. Nose: very grassy and malty attack, growing more and more herbal. Extremely strong, hard to enjoy neat. It gets a tad smoky with a few drops of water, with also quite some honey. Mouth: very powerful attack, with some nice notes of spices and herbs beyond the sweetness that make me think of Oban. Some notes of fresh apricot. A good, kind of 'natural' one, too bad the finish gets just a little bitter. 82 points.
