A very gentle and fruity whisky. Would have benefited from a balancing dryness.
8 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Biscuity, buttery. Apple jelly. Like walking in an orchard in September and stamping on fruit fallen from the tree, dried leaves and wet grass.
Palate: Oily, thick, very sweet. Autumn fruit syrup. Apples, a touch of quince. Wood well integrated.
Finish: Sweet, with a slight dry spiciness. Some nuttiness maybe.
Comment: A very gentle and fruity whisky. Would have benefited from a balancing dryness.
Nose: Broad. Dried mango, light cereal, furniture polish. Very soft and fruity. Slightly dulled by water.
Palate: Macadamia nut and cooked apple toasted almond and then into black fruit.
Finish: Dries suddenly.
Comment: Starts out as a great big floppy Labrador of a whisky, then there’s an abrupt change in gear towards the finish.
