A well structured whisky. Oak frames the aromatic palette without overpowering. Quite a complex dram.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Fruity. Cider apples. A bit sharp at start but quickly turns biscuity. Sweet vanilla notes. As it opens, the appley character breaks through to lead way to fudgier aromas.
Palate: Thick, oily. Creamy fudge, raisins and milk chocolate. A sensuous spicy wave.
Finish: Lingering, peppery. A bitter oaky edge.
Comment: A well structured whisky. Oak frames the aromatic palette without overpowering. Quite a complex dram.
Nose: Rounded. The first with any extra complexity to it. Plenty of vanilla, butter and a hint of pine. Light spices and sweet citric notes, apricot and banana. Orange peel and zest.
Palate: Very pure flavours. Clean with a mix of nuts and spice from the oak and a sweet spirit. Vanilla cinnamon, pepper spiced apple.
Finish: Vanilla. Very smooth. Medium length. Spicy.
Comment: Another great session drink, this has the sweeter edge. Good distilling. Stylish.
