Nose
Dusty, malty and earthy with a faint industrial note, however some honey and lightly creamy oak balances. Showing maturity with a late herbal/grassiness.
Palate
Begins a little austere until the honey and creamy oak arrives. Hints of barley, dusty oak, coffee and malt on the middle along with a slight industrial note.
Finish
Long and a little hot with a dry barley and straw finish. The creamy oak lingers pleasantly.
Comment
It has charm and thankfully enough sweet honey and creamy oak to balance its industrial character.

Nose
The nose is really quite complex, with oak spices, leather and a hint of new wool. It noses like an old whisky. Some notes of shoe polish, too.
Palate
A really lovely palate which gives cherry jam, soft summer fruits and nutmeg and cinnamon spices. There is a nice savoury note to this, balancing out the sweetness, like a good chutney.
Finish
Sweet, delicious and rounded. This dram is very well constructed.
Comment
Some might find the finish a touch too sweet, but I loved it.
