Nose
Opens with very creamy toffee / coffee, followed by herbal barley, acacia honey and hints of dried fruit – prunes in light syrup. Lovely depth with late hints of earth and wood smoke.
Palate
Again opening with the creamy toffee / coffee and a little sweetish wood spice. Very elegant with plenty of dried fruit and minerals on the middle.
Finish
Long and gently herbal with a lovely, slightly mouth-watering, citrus and a smidgen of drier spices.
Comment
Evocative and succulent. A beautifully balanced refill sherry matured dram.

Nose
Peach melba, raspberries and whipped cream. Tinned stone fruits and a hint of grappa give this a vibrant nose to add life to the fruity notes.
Palate
Sweet cherries dipped in white chocolate. Angel cakes and tropical fruit juice. Really well balanced with excellent flavours that don't shout too loudly.
Finish
The tropical fruits are given an extra layer of earthy spices in the finish, suggesting well matured liquid.
Comment
This could be the most perfect dessert whisky; pour in place of a sweet wine.
