Nose
Intense. Tangy. Dried fruit and cereals. Pear drop. Quite sharp for its age. With water, honey.
Palate
Oily. Crisp and dry. With a fizzy feel. The alcohol bite is tempered by a thick texture which coats the tongue. Malty character.
Finish
Dry, spicy. With some astringency.
Comment
Incredibly crisp and strong for its age. Water mellows the nose but makes the palate more astringent. Lack of balance.

Nose
Big nose. Fresh peeled oranges and lemon zest. Quite malty as well but there is an underlying sweetness too.
Palate
Initially seems dry and fresh and mouth coating with that malt loaf texture coating the mouth.
Finish
Dries the mouth. Moreish.
Comment
Packs a lot of punch and is a good conversational whisky.
