Easily one of the best 8 Years Old on the market: very, very impressive and enjoyable.
8 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Light, despite a charming smokiness. Incredibly clean. A soft citric background reveals young age.
Palate: Intensely malty, fresh with increasing sweetness as the kippery peatiness gathers.
Finish: Echoing smoke and a delicious build up of cocoa notes. Long. Toasty. Highly satisfying with almost perfect bittersweet balance.
Comment: Easily one of the best 8 Years Old on the market: very, very impressive and enjoyable.
Nose: Autumn leaves. Grass. Peat smoke.
Palate: Picnic flapjack, slightly burnt at the edges. Nutty. Gingery. Lively flavours.
Finish: Honey. Cream. Some peat.
Comment: I love the peaty, burnt notes notes in this robustly malty whisky.
