Nose
Gorgeous nose of dusty barley and succulent, mature honey. The aromas imply age as the fruit displays that lovely aged, tropical character – melon, pineapple, banana and apricot. With time a teasing note of lime appears along with a hint of herbs. Classic!
Palate
Gentle, deep, mature and utterly gorgeous! Full of luscious tropical fruit, honey and sawdusty oak. Superbly deep and heavenly.
Finish
Long and gently spiced with a sliver of mouth-watering citrus, lingering honey and oak.
Comment
Beautiful and mature. I'm running out of superlatives for it.

Nose
A wonderful mix of pear drops, heather honey, sweet vanilla and peach melba. Lemon bonbons to finish off.
Palate
Plenty of vanilla on the palate at first, with a good balance of sweet vanilla oak and distillery spirit, which works well. The lemon bonbons from the nose appear as well on the palate along with some lemongrass.
Finish
Buttery with a hint of green grass and lemon meringue pie.
Comment
Evokes a summer-time feel, with plenty of fresh fruits (pineapples, mostly), cream and honey, but I'd be happy to be served a dram of this anytime of year.
