Nose
Distinctive (port?) wood influences of raspberry, red berries and milk chocolate orange. Very juicy neat with floral cherry orchards when diluted.
Palate
Aromatic grapefruit and rose. Wafer thin prosciutto on malted loaf, with drying pomegranate. A warm woodiness underpins all the flavours.
Finish
A gentle tingle lingers on the side of the tongue for ages.
Comment
Elegant, feminine and flirtatious. Gives you the wink and easy to drink.

Nose
Buttered brown toast, some potted shrimps, a dark caramel sauce and a hint of cocoa nibs.
Palate
Mouth coating and very complex: liquorice, dark chocolate, plump raisins, dark toasted malt, Brazil nuts and eucalyptus/menthol notes. Superb and well rounded.
Finish
Lingering spice, dark chocolate and pepper give this a very broad appeal indeed.
Comment
A very well made whisky, crammed with points of interest. I hope their distillery tour is as compelling....
