Nose
Early must, then malt. Greasy brown paper too.
Palate
Malt carries over from the nose, with ginger and dried fruits.
Finish
Lots of spice and caramel, then subtle oak tannins.
Comment
Drinkable enough, but marked down for its ‘fousty' nose.

Nose
Dunnage warehouses, raspberry jam and crumpets. Fresh buttered rye bread develops.
Palate
Bread crusts, sweet water biscuits, a little spice, trail mix.
Finish
Juicy fruits and quite long, spices build at the end.
Comment
A Rothes for before dinner, a conversational whisky.
