A deft, attractive, dram.
The Queen of the Moorlands
Aged 12 Years, Rare Cask
Nose: Peaty. Dry. Smoky.
Palate: Begins with crisp, toasted (slightly burnt) hazelnuts. Develops a passion-fruit bitterness. Rounded out by a lemony, spicy, background.
Comment: A deft, attractive, dram.
Nose: Chargrilled notes, barbecue embers, peppery extra-virgin olive oil, then a vanilla garnish.
Palate: Ultra-delicate with smoky vanilla, earthy, chargrilled notes opening up, while baked apples, vanilla sauce, juicy lemon and maltines.
Finish: Earthy, barbecued flourish with lightly luscious sweetness.
Comment: A cross between a trapeze artist and a tightrope walker: performs dazzling routines while retaining poise and balance.
