A very mellow, lovely drop, could be a new go-to whisky for pre-dinner.
15 Years Old, Single Grain
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A great mix of sweetness and citrus up front. Lemon drizzle cake with icing sugar. Baked apples and cinnamon, then baking spices, nutmeg, vanilla and allspice.
Palate: Wonderfully soft and gentle. Coats the mouth with vanilla and spices, like a warm apricot and almond croissant. Hints too of poached pear and banana bread.
Finish: Candied orange peel dipped in chocolate. A little floral just at the end.
Comment: A very mellow, lovely drop, could be a new go-to whisky for pre-dinner.
Nose: Full bouquet of lilies, gorse flowers and aloe vera with hints of mango sorbet and barbequed lime slices. Irn Bru bars, maraschino cherries as well.
Palate: Spicy sweet goodness followed by a herbal chalky texture with spearmint and freshly ground coffee. Toasted marshmallows, orange marmalade on hot porridge and ripe banana skin create warmth and bitterness.
Finish: A bitter spice carries through the palate but falls short on finish otherwise.
Comment: A grain that would give a rye whisky a run for its money.
