No age statement
Year of Bottling
Nose: Intense, perfumy. Floral. Gillyflowers. Opens on fruity notes. Gooseberry. Pears poached in a spicy syrup. Complex. Multilayered. Honeyed peaches.
Palate: Sweet and luscious. Silky (raw silk). Oak and fruit mingle perfectly. Nougat. Dried cranberries and raisins.
Finish: Very clean, soft and dry at the same time.
Comment: A lovely dram. Sensuous and complex.
Nose: Massively floral like opening an envelope of rose petals. Waves of sweetness from green sharp fruits, apples skins, rhubarb and apricots. Some lush exotic spices as well.
Palate: White chocolate, mango fruit salad, hints of bitter oak and fresh cream. A little earthy too.
Finish: Spirity at the end, but in a good way, then it dries leaving oak spices.
Comment: A stunning whisky, almost everything you need for the spring.
