Slather this on a scone with some strawberry jam.

Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Light on its fragrant feet. Sharp green apples, spring blossom, fresh pine, vanilla ice creams, pencil shavings and thyme.
Palate: This tiptoes across the tongue. Crème brûlée and a drying wood influence, apple skin and that vanilla ice cream.
Finish: The vanilla palate turns to Cornish clotted cream, with a hint of hazelnut.
Comment: Slather this on a scone with some strawberry jam.
Nose: As buttery as they come. Crème caramel and lemon meringue. Praline and milk chocolate, becoming custardy as the fruits – peaches, gooseberries and blackcurrant juice – come into play.
Palate: Buttery, creamy quality with a velvety spirit. Gooseberry fool. Toffees. Lemon drizzle cake, with a hint of ginger and nutmeg. Some light syrup.
Finish: Once the fruits and sugars fade, ginger and nutmeg take over for a warming end.
Comment: A laid-back Highland lass of a dram; warming and wonderful company.
