Nose
Pungent and phenolic but not hugely peated. Very coastal and citric with almost gristy barley notes, combined with malt biscuits, dunnage, astringent herbs and a touch of gooseberry.
Palate
Full, barley with gentle honey and crisp citrus. Darkens towards the middle as the malt appears along with some dry, woody peat and drier oak notes, although the sweetness balances.
Finish
Superb length. Dry and salty with lingering barley and citrus.
Comment
Beautifully poised and balanced. You have to love its intensity.

Nose
An incredible waft of malt and vanilla drive this nose, as white flowers and peach develop to round off what is a sumptuous bouquet of aromas indeed.
Palate
A good solid balance of oak, vanilla, red summer fruits, white meadow flowers, some milk chocolate and full cream milk. Really very tasty.
Finish
Some spice, more oak and that big vanilla milkshake hit.
Comment
A lovely, well balanced dram; sets a benchmark for ‘good, ordinary well-made whisky'.
