Nose
Bright and tangy tangerine and tangerine leaf, physalis, vanilla, fresh wood shavings, honeysuckle and wet tarmac.
Palate
Toffee precedes a big bouquet of orange citrus fruits, numbing anise, cooling menthol and a slightly soapy texture. The remains of a bonfire smouldering in the drizzle.
Finish
There's a distinct granitic quality to the finish. I feel like I'm chewing a mountain. In a good way.
Comment
Some great twists and turns in this helter skelter of a whisky.

Nose
Gorgeous cream and limes, with buttermilk followed by custard powder. Pear juice. Heavy on barley, with honey, green tea, peach and gooseberry. Minuscule traces of ash.
Palate
The ashiness is bound tightly with herbal notes: bay leaves, fennel, sage and then that barley heft. Pear drops and a hint of pink grapefruit. Assam tea.
Finish
Walnuts and ground almonds, with a thread of chilli peppers and honeyed green tea.
Comment
An excellent, complex, subtle and slightly unusual offering. One for all seasons.
