Nose
Lots of Dundee (thick-cut) marmalade mixed with gold syrup, coconut and wood shavings. Water takes it into nougat territory along with a little treacle, apple and malt loaf.
Palate
As nose, with some peach, jasmine to start before it deepens into lilac, nut and raisin.
Finish
Spicy and clean.
Comment
Good, just lacking the extra layers which produce complexity.

Nose
Chinese takeaway wrapper. Stewed vegetables. With time cocoa and biscuit notes.
Palate
Definitely up a notch or two from the nose. Tinned fruits in syrup. Sweet and full with soft pear and a dusting of spice.
Finish
Quite long and definitely pleasant. A whisky which grows as it goes.
Comment
Not spectacular but a solid and enjoyable malt and a pleasant ambassador for a distillery which rarely gets the limelight.
