Nose
Fragrant barley and honey, peanuts and hints of lime, gooseberry and greengage. Showing some age with a delightful, subtle, dusty oak character. With time, hints of minerals, toffee and cream.
Palate
Soft and gentle with moist apricot, honey and barley. Good depth with lightly dusty American oak and hints of clotted cream, toffee and balancing citrus.
Finish
Long and very citric with an almost grainy/mineral bite in the finish.
Comment
A pleasant, mellow, mature whisky.

Nose
Red boiled sweets, summer fruits, banana and coconut, almost tropical. Butter and maple syrup. An IHOP where they serve Scotch.
Palate
Delicate and soft, it gives cream soda at first, followed by coconut water and white flowers. The red sweets have become lighter, white ones and there is some sugar sweetness.
Finish
A hint of bitterness is hidden behind a complex and well-balanced dram.
Comment
A super easy-drinking dram which, aside from the final bitterness, is quite wonderful.
