Nose
Light, fresh, fragrant, peat-smoke. Very attractive.
Palate
Firm, biscuity maltiness. Some barley sugar sweetness, developing suggestions of butter. A hint of black treacle. Some sherry.
Finish
Cereal grain oily dryness. Oat-like flavours. Sappy, smoky.
Comment
A welcome bottling of this neglected malt, and an interesting example.

Jim Murray

85
Nose
Stunning honey depth with a touch of mint and eucalyptus adding oaky firmness. Rare and glorious balance for is age.
Palate
A big honey-oak arrival that is waxy and chewy but filters out into more controlled spice.
Finish
A bitter-sweet honeyed saltiness, then thumping arrival of malt and oak in tandem.
Comment
This is big, bruising, uncompromising whisky of very high class.
