Nose
Fruity and laden with liquorice spice at first. Strawberry fruit, leather, anise, blackcurrant and a faint touch of dry red wine, if you dig deeper.
Palate
Superb on the first sip; malty cereal, fresh soft summer fruit, a dusting of cinnamon and vanilla ice cream. If only they made breakfast cereals like this.
Finish
The oak becomes more vanilla and gives a lengthy lingering dimension.
Comment
A bumper crop of flavours at work here. Superb stuff.

Nose
Prickly. Summer fruit. Redcurrant, blackcurrant gum. Even a touch of cider apple. Sourness in the air with water, citrus fruit.
Palate
Smooth at first, then crisp. Sour fruit. Dry cider with a musty note.
Finish
Dry, sour with a spicy kick.
Comment
A dry whisky with a sour fruit profile. It lacks balance and body.
