Nose
A burnt aroma. Smoke drifting from a bonfire mingling with the aroma of lit fireworks. The sulphury notes fly off quickly revealing roasted chestnut, fruit cake,treacle toffee.
Palate
Big bodied and muscular with a fascinating mix of sweet and savoury and just enough bitterness to add another layer.
Finish
Almost vinous thick feel.
Comment
An uncompromising malt which demands a cigar..or two. Love it,or leave it,this one won't care. The best of the Boisdale trio.

Nose
Oaky. Damp wood,with a lingering mushroom note.Must in a cider press.
Palate
Sweet. Autumn fruit. Medlars again with cooked apples in cinnamon. Cloutie dumpling. Oak makes a firm comeback as well.
Finish
Spicy,dry.
Comment
Not as oaky on the palate as expected from the nose.Lacks subtlety. The nose is not specially inviting. Water enhances bitterness.
