The aromas are fruity-floral at first - flowering currant, hint of blackcurrant - with some ash or char in the background (scorched brown toast?) and after a while a trace of damp linen. Water brings up cereal notes (principally maize), and some meaty aromas. The development is towards scorched paper - fragile and no off-notes. The palate has a light mouthfeel, pleasantly sweet, central palate, drying lightly, with a trace of acidity.
Lightly smoky, nutty whiskies like Knockando find the savoury notes in vegetarian dishes such as tapenade or vegetarian haggis.
