Funny enough,that strong dram is better neat. But give it time.

Nose: Sharp but fragrant. Rich toffee. Creamy cappuccino. Candied chestnuts. Medjoul dates. On time,raisins and nuts chocolate bar.

Finish: Dry, medium long.
Comment: Funny enough,that strong dram is better neat. But give it time.
Nose: Rich and dense. Toffee dominates but there are nutty layers,creamy oak and just a hint of smoke.
Palate: The richness continues with a great oak grip and spices. A lush sweetness\rcoats the mouth.
Finish: Rich and spicy.
Comment: A good example of this distillery. Doesn't swim too well.
