Nose
Discreet rolling tobacco, pear drops, vanilla and a hint of cocoa powder.
Palate
Sweet and lively. Summer berries, honey and intense spicy fruitiness.
Finish
Keeps zinging to the end.
Comment
An elegant, very drinkable Highland style dram.

Nose
Quite shy at first, then is full of subtle apples and cherry blossom. A touch of the medicine cabinet.
Palate
Alcohol zing but fresh and vibrant. Hints of oatcakes and melted sugar. There is a citrus zip to this as well.
Finish
Clean and crisp.
Comment
An interesting alternative to its peated brother.
