Nose
Heavy and oily with barley, oak and honey you could cut with a knife! Lightly perfumed with guava, lime, apricot, vanilla and heather-like notes. Water emphasises the lime making it fresher.
Palate
Full and honeyed with apricot, malt biscuits and barley. Deep and concentrated with refreshing lime. Water makes it juicy and unctuous.
Finish
Long, honeyed and herbal with a superb sweet/dry balance. Water brings out a touch of dry spice.
Comment
The depth and complexity of this malt are breathtaking.

Nose
Liquorice and spices, this gives cloves, cinnamon dusted doughnuts fresh from the fryer, and some more meaty notes of Marmite and Bovril. Big and bold.
Palate
Chopped mint, hints of red grapes, plum chutney and bold spices including cumin and fennel. It sounds rather odd but seems well-balanced. Not too loud, not too quiet.
Finish
Very oaky and dry, this gives some sweetness and some salty notes, too.
Comment
Needs a little more interest in the maturation side. Good quality spirit however.
