Nose
High toned, triple distilled-esque aromas rise above a thick, oily, barley core. Hints of Turkish Delight and rose water seem to reinforce its almost Lowland-like character. Gently spiced with black pepper, cumin and creamy vanilla.
Palate
Young and creamy with the toffeed oak up first followed by sugar sprinkled barley, herbs and olive oil coated banana. Quite weighty with some gentle spices and citrus.
Finish
Fairly austere and mineral, although the oils try to balance. Light rose water aftertaste.
Comment
A Highland malt for Auchentoshan lovers!

Nose
A spirited nose gives alpine forest floor, lily of the valley and weak clear apple juice.
Palate
A very sweet palate has elements of toasted marshmallow, crushed almonds and a hint of green grass.
Finish
Light, slightly earthy, delicate.
Comment
This is a very light product, erring a little too much on the side of sunflower oil. Not quite enough body or depth, but a very easy drink.
