Nose
Pungent, coffee laced with honey and barley so thick you could spread it! Herbal with oxidised, stewed fruit (plum and prune) and sub rye-like notes. Mash and buttery oak note. Water releases juicy citrus and dusty oak.
Palate
Alcoholic and needs some water to release the juicy barley, citrus and honey. Hints of coffee, stewed fruit and gentle but bittering spices. However it is the sawdusty, mature oak which steals the show.
Finish
Long and citric with the rye-like herbal notes lingering.
Comment
A little water and this beauty unwinds into a sublime whisky.

Nose
Toffee, bananas, a hint of plum chutney, some copper tones and toasted brown bread with salted butter.
Palate
Warming and malty, there is a hint of Blue Bird toffee, sweet builder's tea and heather honey. Water brings out pickled ginger and lemongrass.
Finish
Rich, oily and full of cinnamon spice.
Comment
A fine example of a well matured, high strength, oily and rich Scotch whisky. A very solid performance indeed.
