Nose
Tart citrus and lovely sawdusty American oak. Lusciously honeyed with hints of gooseberry, lime and soft spice. Stunning depth.
Palate
Crisp, mineral with white fruit, barley, lime and hyacinth. Lusciously honeyed and creamy with sawdusty, mature oak. Superbly balanced.
Finish
Long, citric and mouth-wateringly mineral with subtle Cognac-esque dried fruit notes.
Comment
A classic American oak aged, mature Highland Malt.

Nose
Wow, the smoke on this sits perfectly with the summer fruits and stone fruits. Apple develops on the nose, wrapped in fantastically velvety smoke. Age, certainly. Tiredness, none.
Palate
Sweetness on the front of the palate, oak spices in the middle and a waft of smoke at the back. This is like pre-war mainland whisky making.
Finish
Perfectly dry and smoky. A day longer in the cask, and it'd be a different story.
Comment
Just fantastic. Smoke, heather and fruits combine to produce pre-war style product.
