Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Delicate and floral, the oak input from the bourbon barrel is in perfect harmony with the gently sweet malt.
Palate: Less compelling than the aroma. Offers mouth-watering malt before a burst of peat dries it out.
Finish: Bittersweet, oaky-smoky affair that lasts longer than expected.
Comment: An impressively balanced, stylish dram that deserves far better recognition.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet but slightly burnt. Reminiscent of treacle toffee. Perhaps even molasses.
Palate: Starts sweet, almost icing-sugar, then quickly dries to grassier, herbal, oily notes.
Finish: Light peat. Cedar.
Comment: A pleasant malt, but this bottling has less structure than I remember. It is to be hoped that new owners Dewar's give more prominence to this distillery.
