Fresh and vibrant, with enough complexity to invite another sip.
10 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Bright and zingy. Fresh ginger and lemongrass, lemon peel, and sherbet. Then some subtle grassiness, with milky porridge and cream cracker. Touches of mandarin, potpourri, and gorse.
Palate: Medium bodied. Toasted oats, walnut, maple syrup, and bitter dark chocolate, surrounded by citrus. Sweet-musky floral notes. Then lemon posset, with chewy meringue.
Finish: Medium, on raisin and walnut bread.
Comment: Fresh and vibrant, with enough complexity to invite another sip.
Nose: Grassy and delicately floral. Mown lawn, chamomile tea, bisongrass, and dried mango pieces. Toasted tea cake. Raspberry fromage frais.
Palate: Medium-full. Tinned peaches and mandarin, Percy Pig candies, lemon syrup, and the fatty, creamy vanilla of white chocolate. Milk chocolate-coated toffees. Chocolate éclair and limeade.
Finish: Medium-long. A delicate peanut butter and raspberry jam note builds.
Comment: Some may say its fruity mass appeal means it isn’t ‘serious’ whisky, but I say this will be popular for good reason.
