Nose
Delicate. Malty and nutty. Hazelnut toffee. Dried apples. Medlars. A sylvestry note. Like drying leaves and pine needles in autumn. Crème caramel. Quite enticing.
Palate
Surprisingly sweet at first. Followed by a spicy outburst. Teases the tongue before releasing sweet fudge flavours.
Finish
Sweet then dry with a nutty aftertaste.
Comment
An interesting and invigorating autumn dram which needs water to cut the edges.

Nose
A little humidor note, leaf mulch and dried fruit. There is a creamy undertow as well and some ripe soft fruit.
Palate
Honey sweet to start then the spices explode. Cinnamon, chocolate and raisins. Clotted cream and burnt sugar at the end.
Finish
Lush and sweet.
Comment
Another decent whisky from a distillery showing it holds interesting stocks, what next I wonder...
