Nose
Rich biscuity notes. Honey and toffee. Shoe polish. Greengage. Vanilla ice cream. A distant touch of wet cellar. Water releases lighter floral notes.
Palate
Lovely velvet feel. Rich, oily. Complex. Oak and age give a bold structure to the palate.
Finish
Spicy, dry. Slightly bitter. Like gentian root.
Comment
A dash of water is perfect. Skip the pudding and enjoy your dram with a shortbread.

Nose
Clean and spicy. Lightly fragrant, dried apple, cinnamon toast, ripe citric notes, toffee, wholemeal. Becomes woodpile like.
Palate
Soft and smooth. Menthol. Light, with some flowers.
Finish
Toasty oak.
Comment
Has maturity and some elegance.
