Nose
Oxidised fruit and herbs. Oozing maturity, with dusty oak and tropical banana, apricot and pear. A touch of barley and creamier oak. Water brings out some waxy citrus.
Palate
Full and honeyed with barley, toasty oak, mature oxidised fruit and herbal rancio. Water emphasises the citrus.
Finish
Gorgeous length with the dusty American oak coming through. Mouth-watering and fruity although it needs diluting to bring out the softness and hints of heather and violets.
Comment
A stunning dram! Sensational neat or with water.

Nose
Fantastic nose of flambé bananas and Crêpe Suzette. If there isn't good age on this whisky, then it's come from a top class cask, sweet oak and warm cinnamon buns.
Palate
Neat, this sits wonderfully on the palate with those warm cinnamon buns making you feel so at home and a dry oak that is perfectly balanced. With water it just gets better.
Finish
Orange creams. Beautiful and delicate old oak and mandarin tones.
Comment
A little over-sweet in places. Aside from that, just wonderful.
