An easy drinker that will have wide appeal.
15 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Polished oak, apricot jam, candied lemon, and sultanas. Plum wine and Amalfi lemon. Delicate lily pollen and orange blossom. Toffee sauce over buttermilk pancakes.
Palate: Medium. Juicy orchard fruit – fresh Pink Lady apples and pears – at first, before sweet puff pastry twists with raspberry jam emerge. A little cinnamon sugar on wholemeal French toast.
Finish: Medium. As the fruit fades, a subtle almond note emerges.
Comment: An easy drinker that will have wide appeal.
Nose: Sweet and herbal, like rosemary caramel. Touches of heather honey and plump raisin. Woody clove, cinnamon, and a hint of sawdust. Tart apple and redcurrant, and a hint of vanilla buttercream.
Palate: Full bodied. Dark chocolate-coated oaty biscuits and black coffee. Very light tart berry notes. The herbal notes remain but are muted. Cinnamon returns as chai latte syrup, with a hint of pecan.
Finish: Long, on caramelised pecan and fresh mint.
Comment: The cask influence was certainly felt, but nicely balanced.
