Nose
An excellent mature nose that smells of dunnage warehouses (damp earth, whisky-soaked oak, hessian). Some dried apple and sultana. With a drop of water a mealy/mash-tun note is revealed.
Palate
A laid-back, late-afternoon kind of a dram that mixes very gentle fruits with ginger snaps.
Finish
Simple and short.
Comment
Soft and very easy.

Nose
Malty and nutty. Toasted hazelnuts, candied chestnuts. Praline. Opens on toffee notes. Enticing and appetising. Then pears poached in a vanilla syrup.
Palate
Smooth and sweet. Creamy fudge. Toffee. A hint of liquorice.
Finish
Sweet and nutty. Drying on some peppery notes.
Comment
A well balanced and generous dram. A delight for a sweet tooth.
