Nose
Very fresh, assertive. Leafy, lightly peaty. Fragrant smoke.
Palate
Big, slightly syrupy and very malty, with nuts, raisins, ginger, lemon peel and roses.
Finish
Spicy, flowery, peaty.
Comment
Far paler and less sherried than the main version from this distillery. I would like at least some sherry to round the gingery spiciness, but I like the way that rose character comes through in this one.

Jim Murray

80
Nose
Orangey and very faintly peaty, yet light and slightly ethereal.
Palate
Tangy and sweetly malted. Rich, slightly oily body; biscuity, chewy. Gentle smokiness.
Finish
Very clean and soft with the malt managing to outweigh the oak. Impressive.
Comment
Extremely high quality expression from an ill-served distillery.
