No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Tight, fragrant nose: cinnamon, clove, apple and heather. Firmer and more malty with water.
Palate: A fairly tight structure with root ginger, heather, dry grass, dried apple. Good maturity, well balanced and a spicy, exotic overtone.
Finish: Clean, good length.
Comment: Balances sweet and savoury. Next time though make it unchillfiltered!
Nose: Lots of floral, tannic, oak extract. Heady. Hypnotic.
Palate: Peaches, honey, anis.
Finish: Crisp, dry oakiness.
Comment: The oak does not totally dominate, but is powerful for such an elegant malt.
