SMWS 58.18 (Strathisla 10 yo 2005/2016)

2016, SMWS
Single malt - Speyside
White wine
60.4% ABV

Nose: Grass, chamomile, white grapes, marmalade, hints of pears. With water, honey, barley sugar, vanilla. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens, tingly, slightly gritty. 
Tasting:  Sweet sour. Green tea, chamomile, vanilla, white grapes, pink peppercorns, hints of ginger. With water, sweeter, less pungent, honey, dark chocolate. 
Finish: Medium. Dark chocolate, vanilla, pink peppercorns, ginger. 


Very young whisky, but fruity and grapey on the nose. Slight pungency on the tongue, and in the finish, at least when neat. Once water is added it opens up quite a bit, becoming sweeter and more delicate. I'm not really blown away.


Not bad.
