Nose: Butterscotch, breakfast juice (grapefruit and orange) with a dusting of icing sugar and nutmeg. A hint of apricot jam and grape jelly.\n
Palate: A little leathery with hints of chamois leather, dark chocolate coated almonds, hazelnuts and chai tea.
Finish: Here the chai spices come through in abundance and a slight waft of vanilla.\n
Comment: A spicy little number which took some getting used to. Savoury.
Nose: Intense and very herbal with heather, barley, honey and taut oak. Gentle tropical aromas of melon, apricot, green apple and guava appear. With time a touch of wood spice and vanilla.
Palate: A lovely mouthful of subtle sawdusty oak, tropical melon and apricot with herbal notes. Stunning depth with a superb honeyed sheen. Develops citrus, spice and light stony notes.\n
Finish: Long, stony and very citric but the honey returns to balance.\n
Comment: A seriously complex and classy malt. Can I have some more please Mr Distillery Manager!
