A cream tea in a bottle.
12 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Vanilla essence, icing sugar, and ground barley. Pear drop and Sugar Puffs. Green tea with jasmine and honey.
Palate: Medium. Well-integrated flavours of strawberry and ripe banana, then raspberry jam and clotted cream on a fruit scone. It’s somewhat buttery.
Finish: Medium, on butter and blackberry preserve.
Comment: A cream tea in a bottle.
Nose: Printer ink and woody scented candle. Then banana foam sweets and crystallised pineapple. Blinis, crab apple, sour cream, and a little moss and sappy pine.
Palate: Medium bodied. Sourdough and parsley butter. Toffee apple, caramel-coated popcorn, Victoria plum, lemon-flavoured boiled sweets, black pepper, and a tiny hint of black truffle.
Finish: Medium, with sponge cake, elderflower syrup, and black tea.
Comment: A nicely balanced and nuanced whisky.
