Nose
?Malty. Honey Smacks cereal. Barley sugar. Fruit after a while. Tinned peaches, stewed pears. Elegant oak, a polished floor note. Complex. Nut biscuits. Gentle spices; long peppercorn, coriander.
Palate
?Smooth at first then oak speaks up. But in the most refined way. Honey, beewax. Greengage jam. Ground ginger. Drying on spices.
Finish
?Lingering. Spicy and oaky. Slowly fading on dry almond.
Comment
?A superb whisky, rich, deep, complex, with a mature oakiness. I would avoid water personally.

Nose
?Bold and big, serious layers of aroma. Honey nut cornflakes, proving dough heavy with yeast. Then a sweet fruit syrup note, beeswax, and then the spices start to develop, a roast pepper edge and herbs.
Palate
?Elegant and refined. The sweetness from the nose is balanced with a rich manuka honey, a citrus edge and ginger nut biscuits and butter.
Finish
?Keeps giving with oak spices and a little of that powdery ginger biscuit note.
Comment
?A serious multilayered and intriguing dram, that just keeps revealing more and more over time.
