Nose
Fruity and oak are intertwined. Cider cellar. A mix of damp wood notes and sour apples. In the back a faint cinnamon aroma.
Palate
Round and mellow at start. Then a spicy explosion gives a fizzy feel on the tongue. Toffee and more liquorice. The alcohol is well-mastered.
Finish
Dry and nutty.
Comment
A characterful autumnal dram. To sip with an apple pudding.

Nose
Fizzy sour sweets, pickled apricots, ginger and damson jam. There is oak here too, fresh cut wood, pencil shavings. Drying leaves and a hint of a distant fire.
Palate
Sweet all over, vanilla waffles, ice cream and apricot jam. Then the spices start to build.
Finish
Spicy with a little bitter oak.
Comment
Nice to see another decent addition to the blended malt category.
