Nose
Tropical fruit monster – guava, papaya, melon, pear, banana, apricot, peach and lime. Mature and deep with acacia honey, minerals and dusty oak.
Palate
Opens with a little more minerality, citrus and barley but the mature tropical fruit is still there, if a little subdued. Very citric and mineral on the middle but the creamy oak smoothes the edges. Absolutely majestic!
Finish
Citric and minerally with the echo of the tropical fruit lingering along with some toasty oak.
Comment
Whisky like this makes tasting an absolute pleasure.

Nose
A classic single malt Scotch nose with a wonderful balance of oak spices, vanilla sweetness and distillery character. Peaches and honey add some additional levels.
Palate
A thick and oily palate with some wonderful manuka honey, coal dust, white flowers and toasted pine nuts. There is a lovely ‘vintage' feel to this whisky.
Finish
Sweet, yet with the oak bitterness as a foundation. Very well balanced.
Comment
An old-school style of single malt where oak flavours mattered.
