Nose
Intense, perfumy. Rich, buttery. Madeira cake, orange peel. Enlightened by a persistent floral note. Freesia. Opens on exotic fruit. Fresh pineapple juice. Complex, releasing waves of enticing aromas. Some salty butter fudge.
Palate
Satin-like texture. Smooth to start with then drying with a pleasant crispy feel. Baked apples, a touch of honey. Gentle spices again.
Finish
Dry and long, with a gentle astringency.
Comment
A superb nose, the palate is slightly restrained but still very enjoyable and harmonious as well.

Nose
Shy at first, then this herbal maple syrup sweet note. Very honeyed, dark woodland honey. A lemon rind bite to it then a spice grip of cinnamon and apple peel with butterscotch.
Palate
Big and full bodied, creamy, oily and viscous. Custard tart and nutmeg spice, bread and butter pudding, plump raisins soaked in sherry. The oak grips with this spice explosion of cumin, all spice and cinnamon.
Finish
Long and spiced, full of honey and lemon, not unlike a good hot toddy. Then the spices grip with chilli warmth.
Comment
A graceful whisky all well balanced and integrated too.
