A session whisky which is better on the palate than the nose.
Aged 12 Years
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Citric, with touches of flowers (freesia, lilac, apple blossom) and light esters: pineapple. Some softer fruits as well. Very clean.
Palate: Better than the nose with real mid palate sweetness. Very spicy: nutmeg, long pepper, alongside some light lemon sherbet. In time it gets slightly richer: coconut and brown sugar.
Finish: Medium length. Soft fruits.
Comment: A session whisky which is better on the palate than the nose.
Nose: Floral and nutty. Freesia. Fresh crushed almonds. Beeswax. Touch of damp earth. Pear drop. Ripe banana.
Palate: Velvety, coating. Pleasant fruity profile. William pears. Mashed banana with a touch of demerara sugar. Sweet liquorice.
Finish: Medium length. Clean, fruity.
Comment: An open and conversational whisky. Does not boast complexity but has a vibrant fruity aromatic profile. Tastes stronger than 43%.
