Nose
Brittle toffee, orange, lemons, ginger and new leather, plus hazelnuts and slight salt.
Palate
Viscous, with oranges, cinnamon, vanilla toffee and spicy oak.
Finish
Toffee, allspice and black pepper.
Comment
Soft and rounded – a step up from Manse Reserve in being very nearly the complete article.

Nose
Sweet sherry hits the nose first, then honey and dried fruits.
Palate
Oily on the palate with a powerful hit of spice: hot cloves and pepper, but also sweet nutmeg and cinnamon.
Finish
Very long and quite sweet.
Comment
A warming winter whisky, balancing spicy and sweeter notes nicely.
