Nose
Linen. Hessian. Pot pourri.
Palate
Big, soft, pillowy. Heather. Honey. Sweet. Sugared almonds.
Finish
Balancing peaty dryness. Warming as an open fire.
Comment
Can whiskies be handsome and romantic? This is a seductive bottling.

Nose
Good legs. A succulent yet floral nose: apples with custard, spice, sugared almond, marshmallow.
Palate
Medium-bodied but juicy and elegant. The first hit is a spicy one, then a fragrant, floral yet chewy, mid-palate.
Finish
Sweet then nutty.
Comment
This can cope with plenty of water.
