Tasting notes Angus MacRaild : 86 points (Whiskyfun.com)

A sibling cask, should be same ballpark…

Colour: pale gold.

Nose: yup, same juice. Perhaps just a wee bit narrower, more towards coastal and saline aspects. Some dried seaweed, soy sauce and hessian. Maybe not as 'in yer face' as 341. With water: a little drier, sootier, on carbolic acidity, fermenting wash and sheep wool - yes a bit more farmy I suppose.

Mouth: once again, same ballpark profile, but here it's a little less distinctive, more juicy, syrupy peat smoke, more tar, iodine and camphor stylings. It misses some of these fruitier components that made its sibling more complex I would say. With water: sits nicely between salty and umami qualities. Makes you think of many Asian influences such as nori, pickled ginger and fish sauce, which I'm a sucker for in whisky.

Finish: quite long with a deep smokiness now, warm kiln air, a wee meaty bacon note and back to medicines and iodine.

Comments: another great one, but I just preferred the extra dimensionality (what?) of its sibling.
