Nose
Initial copper notes, briefly sweetening with spun sugar. Then intensifying to dark chocolate.
Palate
Substantial in the mouth, with caramel and dry sherry.
Finish
Shorter than expected. Fruitier with water though.
Comment
A decent addition to the Famous Grouse flight.

Nose
Warming radiators, candy floss, fruity salad, glacé cherries and a touch of dark soy sauce.
Palate
Big and bold, toffe and hazelnuts with dried fruits and raisins.
Finish
Brief but quite engaging.
Comment
A lovely example of twist from the original. One request: set it free from the distillery please.
