A touch slick and a little one-dimensional.
16 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Big, fat and wine like. Sweet and jammy with hot raspberry jelly alongside dry roast peanut, (over) cooked apple and cinnamon.
Palate: Sweet red fruits. Hint of sloe-scented sweetness. Fresh, but as fat as you like in the middle, then comes the cereal.
Finish: Falls away on the back palate.
Comment: A touch slick and a little one-dimensional.
Nose: Wine gums and wet garden undergrowth.
Palate: Bright and fruity, a fresh, lively mouthfeel.
Finish: Drying steadily with vanilla and rye.
Comment: Attractive and eminently quaffable.
