Nose
Classic, crisp, mineral Highland aromas of herbal honey and brittle barley. Beautifully fragrant and vibrant with a touch of dusty oak and a late earthiness and herbal smokiness.
Palate
A little more milky, creamy oak encroachment but the minerality of the spirit stands up to it. A touch of herbal honey and barley comes through leading the way for the return of the citrus and minerality.
Finish
The finish is long, minerally, citric and mouth-watering.
Comment
Now that's the sort of Highland whisky I like!

Nose
Sandalwood and spice. An antique wardrobe in the bedroom of an old British country house: laundered sheets, cedar wood and lavender. A single malt from Narnia perhaps?
Palate
Delicate and slight influence of the wood on the spirit, leaving a fragile whisky, but not in a bad way. Vanilla and green herbs infuse the spirit and there is a touch of old-school whisky making in this palate.
Finish
Grapefruit juice, cinnamon and vanilla custard.
Comment
Like a butterfly in your hand – delicate and beautiful but fleeting and flighty.
