Gavin D. Smith

Nose
Initially very slightly rubbery, then treacle emerges. Earthy, with underlying floral notes, particularly strong in violets.
Palate
Rich and full-bodied. Voluptuous with gingersnaps, malt, warm oak and Jaffa oranges.
Finish
Relatively long, with dark, spicy malt and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.
Comment
A confident, well-rounded cask strength expression from an often underrated distillery.

Nose
Incredibly appealing mix of stem ginger, star anise and dark chocolate.
Palate
Buttery mouthfeel with lots of sweet dried fruits, and warming woody spice.
Finish
Long and sweet.
Comment
A drop or two of water really get the flavours of this rich, sweet, high ABV whisky singing.
