Nose
Restrained. Flowery. Mint cream. Fudge. Opens up on balsamic touch. Cedar.
Palate
Very creamy and soft. Crème brûlée. Cherry flan. Stewed apricots with almonds. Very Cognac-like. Oak is present but beautifully integrated, interlaced with fruit.
Finish
Good length, spices and fruit nicely proportioned.
Comment
Shy at first but cheering up on cake aromas. A liquid pudding.

Nose
Another sweetie, this time with barley sugar, apple, fondant icing, tangerine and lemon. Creamy with a tropical fruit edge. Good depth.
Palate
A lovely sweet layered effect. Orange peel, banana split. Water brings out coconut cream and a nutty oak along with an explosion of spices.
Finish
Full, ripe, long.
Comment
While it might not have the complexity of the best malts here it's a cracking example of a mature grain.
