Nose
Slightly smoky.
Palate
Sweet, then woodily dry. With water, creamy and much improved.

Lemon tarts.
Comment
I thought this whisky had died in the bottle, but water brought it back to life.

Dave Broom

77
Nose
Attractive and malty with dry grass, cooked fruit, apple pie (and pie crust) and orange. Mature, but crisp and toasty.
Palate
Sweet as a nut with Highland toffee, a hint of peat and crisp malt.
Finish
Sweet.
Comment
Delicious and very drinkable.
