Nose
Robust and saline infused apricot, apple and vanilla with lightly chocolaty spice. Marmalade, mature fruit, coffee, sweet peat, smoke and young spirit.
Palate
Full, malty and coffeed with treacle, sweet spice and chocolate. Salty middle with vanilla barley and muscavado sugar-coated peat.
Finish
Long and crisp with the younger spirit component mingling with the salt to give a mouth-watering finish. Lightly smoked with sweet peat and malt.
Comment
A superbly balanced malt. Need I say anything more?!

Nose
Plenty of oak vanilla and lots and lots of spirit, water reveals a gentler side to this with fresh linen, white flowers, some sea salt and just a hint of tropical fruit, with a back note of fino sherry.
Palate
Juicy Fruit chewing gum on the palate, this is quite an oily dram that, with water, shows off good integration between oak and spirit. Light and delicate.
Finish
More juicy notes with elements of fresh pineapple and guava.
Comment
The polar opposite of a big, heavy sherry dram, but equally as appealing.
