Nose
Safron and melon, Veg broth and peach melba. Brut aftershave.
Palate
A pretty direct whisky giving good malt, some ginger, mazipan, and Christmas cake.
Finish
Battenberg cake, black coffee and a hint of oak. Carrot cake.
Comment
This is afternoon tea. Not quite at the poshest restaurant in town, but the one next door. Slightly cheaper, no waiting time but equally as good.

Nose
Warm toffee sauce drizzled over Golden Syrup pudding with orange and saffron.
Palate
Very juicy and mouthwatering with rhubarb jam and ripe plum emerging. Warming cassia, aniseed and cinnamon on the side of the tongue with a little lavender after time.
Finish
The syrup-like texture becomes waxy.
Comment
A very quaffable dram.
