Nose
Opens with the malt, dusty barley and vanilla, along with a touch of sherried dried fruit, earth and spice. With time the floral and botanical grain notes begin to dominate.
Palate
Shows more creamy oak and makes it feel fuller. Quite oily too with subtle barley and sherried notes. The crisp grain comes in quickly but brings some pleasant spice notes.
Finish
Pretty chewy as the malt reasserts itself.
Comment
A pleasant, relatively straight-forward blend, which shows a good malt/grain balance.

Nose
Despite being a blend, this has a nose that puts me in mind of some of the more famous Speyside distilleries, it carries a meaty, oily, sherried note to it. Very inviting.
Palate
Now the grain appears on the palate more than the nose, with a huge creamy note and some hints of thyme, basil and freshly cut grass. Lighter than the nose.
Finish
The cream soda elements in the palate carry on in the finish which is quite short.
Comment
A very inviting nose that doesn't really come through on the palate.
