Nose
Malty. Muësli. Butterscotch. Some buttery biscuit. And fruit. Pear pie. Some earthy peat in the back.
Palate
Smooth and round. Pleasant velvety feel. A bit weak at mid-palate. Toffee apple. Poached pears in a vanilla syrup. Touch of hazelnut.
Finish
Dry, gently spicy. Nutty. Liquorice.
Comment
A well-balanced dram. Enjoyable, just lacks some muscle.

Nose
A little damp cardboard (not a bad thing) at first then breakfast cereal. Malt loaf, oat biscuits and pears in custard. Ice cream sodas. Also a mossy, leaf mulch note.
Palate
Soft and gentle almost silky. The malt loaf note is here with butter. Apples and melted milk chocolate fruit and nut bars.
Finish
Drying with Pontefract cakes and a hint of peat.
Comment
A decent everyday dram, perfect for any occasion.
