Nose
As honeyed as it gets. Mead and mint, stem ginger in syrup. Lovely toffee fudge sweetness. Dried apricots and sultanas.
Palate
Shadows the nose, and the depth of apple/cider/mead layers is really fun. Golden syrup, milky coffee, and plenty of vanilla. With a velvety, slightly cloying texture.
Finish
Long, warming, full of mead, ginger warmth and just a hint of mint and nutmeg.
Comment
Marvellously balanced whisky. Fresh avours, expressed fabulously. Top dram.

92
Nose
Sweetness and rich up front, all honeycomb and milk chocolate, raspberries and meringue. Autumnal leaves, that sweet decay scent (a good thing), warm polished wood in the sun, church pews in the summer heat.
Palate
Wonderfully sweet with a full Blood and Sand cocktail note – citrus tang then maraschino cherries, followed with a little bitter hit. The oak is present with vanilla and a toasted coconut.
Finish
Juicy, juicy and more juice. Keeps on giving. Beautifully long.
Comment
Fantastic. That is all.
