81
Nose
Mature. Sweet almond, cigar box, fried banana, honey and coal dust smokiness. Musk like.
Palate
Waxy, sweet and lifted. Smoothly textured with some melted chocolate, sweet orange and honeyed underpinned by cereal, herbs.
Finish
Sweet with tropical fruits and dying fire.
Comment
Strangely similar to a golden rum - albeit a smoky one.

Rob Allanson

84
Nose
Dried leaves and herbs, burnt bracken, heather. Aromatic, with a prickle of apricot skin. Melting brown sugar.
Palate
Fruity and juicy. Plenty of soft fruit, hints of peach, mango, then moving into gentle spices.
Finish
Lush and aromatic, then drying.
Comment
A quiet talking dram for those contemplative moments.
