A good introductory malt.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Initially malty, becoming rounded and buttery with water. There's olde English marmalade, delicate woodsmoke wood shavings, log, cigar ash.
Palate: Lightly perfumed and quite sweet. Orange peel, stewed apricot, tinned prune and aromatic smoke. Long and smooth.
Finish: Dry, ash-like.
Comment: A good introductory malt.
Nose: Fragrant, oak and malt, very delicate wood smoke.
Palate: Some oiliness, orange juice, again delicate smoke, suggestion of peat.
Finish: Dry, slightly acrid, smoke from cheroots.
Comment: Doesn't leap out of the glass at you, but well balanced and unthreatening.
