Nose
Dubbin. Linseed. Flowery
Palate
Pastry. Malty. Sweet. Butterscotch. Spicy. Straight-ahead. Uncomplicated.
Finish
Very clean and crisp.
Comment
This seems to me the definitive light tasting (triple-distilled) Lowlander. In theory, such whiskies mature young, but this has aged beautifully.

Jim Murray

Nose
Gooseberries with delightfully fresh barley, a sprinkling of unrefined sugar and gentle oak.
Palate
A busy malt boasting an extraordinary degree of complexity for a lowlander.
Finish
Light and elegant with the fabulous malt lingering to the death.
Comment
A must for those in search of the best a distillery can offer. Distilled when the stills performed in perfect harmony.
