Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big, deep and fruity. Sweet with cake notes - candied peels, nuts (Brazil/chestnut), light oak-nuttiness, damson and plumped-up plums.
Palate: Dundee cake, pecan then mulberry jam. Light tannins balancing the thickfruits.
Finish: Long and juicy.
Comment: Wholly matured in port pipes. Shows great balance and style for a 12 YearsOld and is marked accordingly.
8.6
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich, oaky. A lot of toffee. Some outdoor notes. Bracken, humus, moss. Malty aromas slowly make their way through the ground. Quite complex. Sherry notes.
Palate: Smooth and sweet at first with a superb mastering of the alcohol. Thendries out on spices and oak.
Finish: Dry but with an enticing toffee and crème brûlée come back.
Comment: A whisky which delivers more maturity than the age as stated. Quitesurprising, in the best way.
