A textbook ‘everyday’ after-dinner dram.
The Cadboll Estate 15 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Chopped peanuts, store-brand cola with a slice of orange, raspberry jam, and Christmas mincemeat with lots of candied peels.
Palate: Medium-bodied. Fresh red apple, candied orange, milk chocolate, more peanut, and toffee. Blackberry jam on buttered toast, then the same with marmalade.
Finish: Medium. The toffee and Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut notes intensify.
Comment: A textbook ‘everyday’ after-dinner dram.
Nose: Surround-sound orange notes up front – the peel, pith, flesh, and pips – with a gentle, warm farmyard-like note. Ripe banana and rice pudding sprinkled with shaved milk chocolate. Hints of sultana and papaya.
Palate: Light-medium. Tropical fruit notes of passion fruit, mango pulp, overripe banana, and a hint of crystallised pineapple, followed by orange polenta cake and a hint of cinnamon-spiced apple compote.
Finish: Medium-long. On dried mango and subtle milk loaf.
Comment: A tropical delight.
