A soft, gentle, labrador of a dram.
15 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: An unreduced nose of smoked cheese, toasty wood, rich fruits, rubber and crème brûlée. With water added: honey, fresh sawdust and bran.
Palate: Sweet, concentrated red fruits along with toffee, caramelised fruit and a soft grainy mid-palate.
Finish: Clean and dry with a hint of lemon.
Comment: A soft, gentle, labrador of a dram.
Nose: Still decidedly orangey, but much more restrained. Very nutty and malty. A touch of sherry and oak.
Palate: Gentle. Lightly oily. Orangey, perfumy. Creamy, oaty, malty notes. Well rounded.
Finish: Firm but light. Flowery. Heathery. Hint of peat.
Comment: More subtlety sophistication and elegance than the Platinum.
