Nose
The aromas are quite herbal and almost rye-like with hints of fresh barley, earth, vanilla and heather smoke. Aromatic and full with a developing granity note.
Palate
Not quite as complex as there is a little more oak which in combination with the oils dampen. However, it's lightly creamy with pleasant barley and a subtle granity and herbal middle.
Finish
Long, granity and slightly mouth-watering with fragrant barley and a gentle heathery after-taste.
Comment
A good blend showing plenty of Highland character.

Nose
Not a huge amount going on with the nose, but a direct hit of vanilla and cloves.
Palate
A mixture of classic Scotch flavours (vanilla, oak, allspice) which don't quite integrate properly leaving the palate feeling unbalanced and out of tune, but it works much better with water.
Finish
Some foam banana penny sweets and icing sugar.
Comment
This will go down well paired as a half-and-half. Not one for cradling in an armchair but one for fast pouring.
