I only got a sample of 699 but not 701
What harm I am really enjoying 699.
The whisky has a lovely Amber or polished bronze hue and is very bright and clear.
On the nose a deep rich sweetness with nice light Malt beneath, slightly buttery, fruit syrup possibly peach and a touch of green grass (crushed by the footstep of a fairy on a warm spring morning .... Okay I've gone too far
The whisky has a light mouth feel but the sweetness makes it feel bigger. Sweet and very palatable at cask strength. Gobstopper candy, a touch of clove rock, and even fresh green herbs maybe green mint leaf, dry and meaty at times too, possible lick of matchstick (not a complaint) Finish is dryish with wood dust at the very end but never faraway from the sweetness. I feel it's more complex than I'm describing but that is all I can decipher at the minute.
To be honest I'd love to get a bottle straight away but I'd be happy to go with the consensus. Was there a mention of doing some now and some later. That would be even more interesting for me.
