Nose
Fragrant. Sweet honey, crushed almonds. Grapefruit. Marzipan. Porridge. A touch of peat.
Palate
Smooth, silky. Mouthcoating. Sweetness with spice. Hint of nuttiness. Beautifully balanced.
Finish
Reasonably warm, peters off with pleasant spicy notes. Candied ginger.
Comment
This bottling does not have the heathery profile of the official bottlings. Drink with water.

Nose
Dry and heathery. Light perfumed smoke, cumin, fudge/tablet, and with water rhubarb sweets.
Palate
Rich and soft, the high heathery phenols balanced by soft fudgey fruit. A good spread of flavours. It grows and softens then dries before …
Finish
… honey.
Comment
All you'd expect. A little less sweet than the proprietary bottlings but none the worse for that.
