Cask driven and enjoyable without being particularly exciting.
Aged 16 Years
Year of Bottling
Nose: Treacle, mixed with orange liqueur and herbaceous grassiness.
Palate: Sweet, with treacle toffee, ginger and some European oak tannins.
Comment: Cask driven and enjoyable without being particularly exciting.
Nose: Heavy. Floor polish, then barley straw and some burnt orange. Sweetens into banana split, white chocolate, raspberry. Almost OTT.
Palate: Very thick, almost cloying, but the oak is grippy enough to give it structure. Hugely sweet.
Finish: Super-ripe fruits. Long.
Comment: Hardly the most subtle whisky you'll ever meet, but if you love em big and bouncy, this is for you.
