Nose
Tropical fruit bomb! Sugar sprinkled apricot, melon, pear and apple, followed by crisp green apple, gooseberry, lime and honey. Lightly medicinal and smoky peat appears.
Palate
Darker with more malt character and dark honey. The tropical fruit notes are present along with hints of barley, lime and green apple. The medicinal peat builds.
Finish
Intense and chewy with coffee coated banana and dark, moist, earthy peat, liquorice and a touch of treacle. Great finish!
Comment
A truly world class whisky.

Nose
This starts off with wonderful vanilla and light cinnamon spices, and moves into summery elderflower and lily of the valley.
Palate
The palate is smooth, belittling the alcohol level, with a creamy undertone giving this a silky feel. With water more vanilla is revealed and more sweetness.
Finish
A slice of bitter citrus lingers on the finish, which is an odd counterbalance to the sweet, creamy nose and palate.
Comment
A really lovely summer drinking whisky, let down a little by the bitter finish.
