Chris Goodrum

85
Nose
A beautiful, crisp and mineral nose with fragrant honey and hints of apricot, orange, tangerine and peach. With time, hints of mocha and toasted oak appear.
Palate
The palate mirrors the crisp, mineral character of the nose except it is showing a little more barley and oiliness. Pleasantly honeyed and very deep.
Finish
Delightfully long and minerally with lingering barley.
Comment
A lovely, vibrant malt with what appears to be plenty of Highland character. (Although, it'll probably turn out to be to from somewhere completely different!)

Alwynne Gwilt

80
Nose
Instantly wonderful balance of old, sticky fruits and oak. Feels like a very solid maturation. Bit of honey, some waxy fruits, strawberries and cream.
Palate
Rounded, pleasing and I was surprised it was 46%. Balanced and elegant. Vanilla, wax, oak, bit of peppery spice and some lovely summery fruits (peaches, apples).
Finish
Just a hint of earthy bitterness on the back palate but a nice long continuation ofthe flavours.
Comment
Lovely whisky – lots to offer, and one to sit with for a while.
