Nose
Wonderfully deep and showing maturity. Juicy orange mingles with barley, dusty peat and bracing coastal saltiness. Balanced sherry richness and late hint of medicinal peat and herbal chocolate.
Palate
Full and showing more tannic sherry balanced by the sharp citrus notes. Hints of barley, dusty peat, walnut and supple dried orange follow. Coastal notes on the middle.
Finish
Long and deftly juicy. Lingering crystallized orange, subtle peat and salt.
Comment
Beautifully balanced and vibrant.

Nose
Gorse bushes, coconut, milk chocolate, and some lovely rounded fruit notes. This is a well balanced nose. Develops into fresh pine, felt and cigarette box.
Palate
Really subtle, sweet and smooth palate with a big, oily mouthfeel. This is a whisky which doesn't demand attention on the palate but gets it anyway. Excellent flavours, well married.
Finish
Medium in length, drying with some cigar tones.
Comment
A really well crafted whisky, at a strength that works and a flavour balance that is lovely.
