from whiskybase

43% abv, €55*
single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour

Nose: sweet, a touch of vanilla, fresh, light, fruity, citrus, limes, oranges

Palate: sweet, fruity, citrus, limes, oranges, spicy, a hint of cedarwood
Finish: medium long, fruity, citrus, zesty, orange peel
Mark: ++++/+

Conclusion: Nice and fresh. I really like this. She is somewhat reminiscent to a Clynelish to me, but different (something to do with the absent waxiness, I suppose).

More info: distilled in July 1991, aged for 17 years in refill ex-Sherry and ex-Bourbon casks, bottled in March 2009

*back when it got released. Now, she sells for much more…
