Nose
Big, deep and fruity. Sweet with cake notes - candied peels, nuts (Brazil/chestnut), light oak-nuttiness, damson and plumped-up plums.
Palate
Dundee cake, pecan then mulberry jam. Light tannins balancing the thick fruits.
Finish
Long and juicy.
Comment
Wholly matured in port pipes. Shows great balance and style for a 12 Years Old and is marked accordingly.

Nose
Rich, oaky. A lot of toffee. Some outdoor notes. Bracken, humus, moss. Malty aromas slowly make their way through the ground. Quite complex. Sherry notes.
Palate
Smooth and sweet at first with a superb mastering of the alcohol. Then dries out on spices and oak.
Finish
Dry but with an enticing toffee and crème brûlée come back.
Comment
A whisky which delivers more maturity than the age as stated. Quite surprising, in the best way.
