Nose
Rich,muscular and heady with some marzipan,baked fruit,lime blossom. Shifts into fresh cut damp grass,then walnut and butter icing. Complex, becoming silkier.
Palate
Rounded and mouthfilling. Quite chewy and slightly sweet with hints of semi-dried fruits and even some banana. Chocolate. Good balance.
Finish
Minty and long.
Comment
Mature and elegant.

Nose
Malty. Biscuity. Oatcakes. Peaches in a light vanilla syrup.
Palate
Silky. Sweet malty notes with a freshly squeezed lemon juice. Coats the tongue but without being cloying. Creamy. Bourbon cream biscuits.
Finish
Dry and sherbety. A hint of almond in the back.
Comment
A lovely dram. Characterful and satisfying. For the adepts of slow drink. Water kills it.
