Nose
Big, stewed fruit nose. Plump, rumsoaked raisins with a pleasant cheesy note behind. Farmyards once more along with a little sulphur.
Palate
Slightly bitter walnut and chicory to begin with, then some mushroom ketchup. Liquorice, fruit cake, nuts with a fresh acidity. Good integration.
Finish
Toasted almond.
Comment
Balanced and integrated.

Nose
Initially a rootsy, fungal and chestnuty nose, giving way to rich caramel and hazelnut whirl.
Palate
Medium full mouth feel, with an intriguing balance between soft tinned peach and cream, a tangy and savoury mix.
Finish
The tangy salty notes stay the distance in what is an evolving kaleidoscope of a whisky.
Comment
Again complex and involved but in this case, confusing.
