A decent well balanced dram.
Aged 25 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Big hit of crème brûlée with lots of caramelised sugar. Then slightly grassy,\rsome jasmine and crisp green apple.
Palate: At first fresh citrus and mint, then sweet with leathery notes, becoming buttery.
Finish: Sweet caramel, oak and more menthol notes at the end.
Comment: A decent well balanced dram.
Nose: Mint toffee bars with milk chocolate, damp wood shavings, wicker washing\rbaskets, tablet, warm caramel and fudge muffins.
Palate: Sweet up front but seems to lack presence in the mid palate. Great burst of spices, cardamom, cinnamon and some chilli.
Finish: Those spices grip tightly and then relax off.
Comment: A decent enough dram, just lacks a little mid palate.
