A very restorative and comforting dram.
Aged 16 Years
Islands (Non Islay)
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Cedary. Shoe polish. Wood speaks up first but elegantly gives way to fruity notes. Fruit cake. Marmalade. Raisin scones. Cinnamon.
Palate: Round and mellow. Mouth-coating. Rich and luscious. Candied chestnut. Resiny. Smooth.
Finish: Round, sweet, drying off on wood. Hint of chewed tobacco.
Comment: A very restorative and comforting dram.
Nose: Cream, overripe fruits, light citrus, sugared almond, bletted fruits then shifts back to dryness.
Palate: Oloroso sweetness to start. Good oxidised notes, nutty. Soft...very soft.
Finish: Prune. Length.
Comment: Clearly the 10 Years Old is much beefier, but soft-hearted brother.
