Metallic flavour seems dominant, and the rest doesn't hold together.
The Wee Dram
Aged 15 Years
Nose: French polish.
Palate: Metallic. Or is it metal polish? I want to dismiss that idea, but can't get it out of my head. The palate picks up toward the finish, with some passion fruit and honeyed, cedary notes.
Finish: Quick alcohol warmth.
Comment: Metallic flavour seems dominant, and the rest doesn't hold together.
Nose: Toffee apples, sticky toffee pudding with caramel sauce, coconut, macaroons, maltiness.
Palate: Créme caramel sweetness and toffee lead, before the light spicyness of gingerbread, rich dried fruit and a hint of cloves.
Finish: Light and compressed with a subtle sweet-dry balance.
Comment: Individual flavours open up and then group themselves into a neat package, before whispering good-bye.
