Nose
Gently phenolic with dense apricot and barley. Faintly briny with lightly oiled orange and earthy peat. In time a crunchy granulated sugar note appears as the peat slinks off!
Palate
Opens with lightly oiled satsuma and pretty astringent herbal notes. Sweet barley and light vanilla try to balance. Intense, mouth-watering middle with a light peat intimation.
Finish
Reasonable length with a gritty peat smoke and light tannin finish. Tart citrus and green apple after-taste.
Comment
A pleasant enough dram. I could have done with a little more intensity.

Nose
Hot apple pie wafts up, vanilla custard and cherry drops. A hint of liquorice adds depth while a drizzle of Golden Syrup helps maintain an oily, yet sweet structure.
Palate
Madagascan vanilla and thyme develop into robust oaky flavours. More apple juice. Water melon comes through for a burst of freshness, seems a matured whisky.
Finish
Unctuous, water melon lasting longest, dusted cinnamon on top.
Comment
This whisky was pulled at the right time; it won't see another World Cup in cask. On the podium, but not quite punchy enough to take gold.
