I was left feeling unfulfilled, it didn’t deliver enough of anything for me.
12 Years Old
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: This was very shy but some waxed jackets, angelica with a light citrus note. Damp fields. Honey and lemon like a hot toddy, with a hint of barley sugar.
Palate: Quite spicy ginger jam and haystacks. Light citrus and apple rings. Hints of sulphur and had a bitter edge to the back of the palate.
Finish: All up front then died back too quickly.
Comment: I was left feeling unfulfilled, it didn’t deliver enough of anything for me.
Nose: Fragrant. Nutty and malty. Toffee apple. Getting fruitier and oakier on time. Cider cellar. A hint of burnt wood. A delicate earthy touch too.
Palate: Smooth and velvety. Sweet autumnal flavours. Baked apples, medlars. A little weakness at mid palate. Dries on well-integrated oak.
Finish: Medium long and dry.
Comment: A pleasant seasonal dram. Well balanced as well.
