Nose
A crisp, grainy almost pot still spicy nose. Beautifully fleshy with banana, apricot, barley and creamy vanilla. The aromas become oilier and hints of spiced orange rind and coffee appear.
Palate
A barley led opening with soft vanilla oak. Honey and again the pot still-esque spiciness. Superb intensity with juicy citrus and coffee notes coming through.
Finish
Long and spicy with the barley and fleshy fruit lingering.
Comment
Now this is the sort of whisky that excites me. Complex and full of character. Has some unmalted barley been used here?

Nose
Nutty notes, floral polish, caramel and vanilla ice cream.
Palate
Surprisingly sweet, initially, with a little woodiness underneath and a nutty, praline creaminess.
Finish
Drying oak, some caramel notes and a little dried ginger.
Comment
Well rounded, with a touch of dominant oak.
