Nose
Beeswax, polished floor, church bench, candle wax. A tar hint in the back. When aerated, opens up on citrussy notes and barley sugar before a wave of vanilla brings in a sweet brine.
Palate
Smooth, mellow. Velvety. Oak and citrus fruit are intertwined in an elegant two step dance.
Finish
Medium, smooth, hardening up on a more assertive oaky note. Touch of bitter chocolate.
Comment
An elegant and satisfying dram. Well educated, in good quality casks for sure.

Nose
Ripe soft and pillow like with hints of smoke and toasty wood. Citrus leaf, cocoa, cooked apricot, ripe banana, hazelnut giving a crunch.
Palate
Toffee sweetness stretches along the palate. Very clean and clear. Sweet with sultana and cherry.
Finish
Long and silky.
Comment
Relaxed and laid back. This is excellent blending.
