Nose
Pungent, sugar coated almonds, barley and toffee. Leafy and herbal and hints of apricot, orange, tangerine and banana. Water makes it aromatic and buttery American oak notes appear.
Palate
Intense sugar coated barley. Almond and sweet, leafy herbs and a touch of dried grape and honey. Quite alcoholic with developing apricot and wood smoke. Water emphasises the cask's sweetness.
Finish
Very long and very herbal with plenty of drying alcohol. Water lengthens and sweetens.
Comment
Now, that's excellent whisky – power, elegance and complexity.

Nose
Dusty wood, carpet – like a caravan. Even a touch of motor oil. Then a marshmallow sweetness, ripe melons and sea spray. Evocative. Makes me want to go on holiday.
Palate
Honeyed biscuits, oat cakes, toffee, hay and pecans – a breakfast whisky.
Finish
Fairly nutty with a great balance across the palate: sweet, grainy, spicy and sour.
Comment
Intriguing mix between the nose and the palate – both were highly enjoyable but the taste was not what I was expecting after smelling it. A whisky with a story to tell.
