Nose
Intense, malty with an earthy note. Bracken, touch of humus. Digestive biscuits. On time, cooked fruit. Stewed apples with raisins.
Palate
Smooth and round. Satin-like. Oak and fruit are well integrated. Hazelnut toffee, cooked fruit again. A touch of ginger.
Finish
Concentrated, drying on spices and liquorice root.
Comment
A perfectly balanced dram. Mature, smooth and pleasant all the way.

Nose
Initially Parmesan cheese, then mulched hay and farmyard sweetness. Aged tobacco, warm malted milk biscuits, lime marmalade and a little ginger.
Palate
Fruit and nut chocolate. Silky smooth over the tongue. Bags of soft fruit but tempered with a decent hit of oak spices and grip.
Finish
Dries with the oak spices gripping.
Comment
A well balanced dram, full of surprises and layers.
