Nose
Very earthy and loamy with sweet barley, malt and sweet peat smoke. Lovely depth with the alcohol balancing the sweetness. With time hints of rosemary and heather.
Palate
Full and sweet with barley, burnt heather, light coffee, honey and creamy oak. Like the nose the alcohol balances the sweetness.
Finish
Long with lingering sweet malt, burnt heather and earthy peat.
Comment
A very pleasant Highland whisky which reminds me of Glen Garioch, which isn't a bad thing!

Nose
Aggressive spirit in the glass, gives out hints of toffee, which softens over time to reveal some oak, artichoke hearts, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate
Creamy with a hint of old bottled Johnnie Walker Red Label, this is a dram that is bold but doesn't shout too loud. Not quite well balanced enough but a good job.
Finish
Lots of plum chutney and oak spice.
Comment
Lots of flavours and the balance is almost there.
