First Impression: Bakery Hill Classic Malt

[46.0%・NAS・Bottled in 2016・Official Bottling・Single Cask Release・Cask No. 4116]

Nose:

A welcoming aroma from the whisky crumble, grassy in nature, a sound delivery of aromatic molecules leading with orange peels.  Very clean with some lemongrass and ginger cubes coming through in time.

Palate & Finish:

The nose carries through onto the palate, green apples, honey and tree gum, grassy with a healthy dose of cinnamon spices, which unfolds into the familiar notes of caramel and vanilla fudge.

Hints of vanilla fudge and golden honey subtly carry on.

Thoughts:

Easy drinking, clean and structurally sound.  One could argue this is not very Australian at all but rather it is spiritually Speyside; perhaps a cousin of BenRiach 10, which is a compliment you don’t quite hear often in this part of the world..
