Nose
Succulent, fragrantly smoked dried fruit. Oily sultana with dried apricot, coconut and marzipan, cedar and camphor. Light granulated sugar and astringent herbal notes.
Palate
Lightly oiled and spiced mélange of sultana, dried grape, cherry, apple and apricot. Gentle wood smoke with some distinct, sweet but edgy grain spices.
Finish
Long and oaky with coconut and peanut notes, finishing with some lovely, crisp grain.
Comment
A lovely, moderately aged grain whisky. This has a truly unique flavour profile which every whisky lover should try at least once.

Nose
Fresh, fruity, a nice oaky spice. Pineapple, something minty. Smells like it's going to be clean.
Palate
Classic: spice, sweet, rounded. Nice balance of fruit (raisins, plums, Christmas cake) with a good bit of freshness and cinnamon zing.
Finish
Bit of a dry kick at the back, with a nice buttery brown sugar note. Medium length.
Comment
Comments: Good all- rounder. Tastes like whisky straight from warehouse on a cold day. Very appealing.
