Nose
Mature, deep. Laid-back succulent sherry with orange blossom honey, malt, coffee and sweet spice.
Palate
Elegant and luscious with sweet coffee, milk chocolate, malt and soft sherry. It bites a little on the middle but the depth of Armagnac-esque dried fruit and dark honey balances.
Finish
Long and spicy with lingering dark chocolaty wood notes, green nuts, malt and treacle.
Comment
A perfectly laid-back whisky, for those laid-back moments!

Joel Harrison

75
Nose
Old cigar boxes, with a slight hint of egg and cress sandwiches on brown bread. It's a curious mix of sulphur, iron, pumpkin and cinnamon spice.
Palate
Much improved from the eggy nose, this has toasted hazelnuts, some cherry stones, and pulled pork BBQ. Sawdust and leather are also there, to give this some body.
Finish
More of the sulphur notes which erode an otherwise decent palate.
Comment
Drinking a single malt in the Blue Lagoon, Iceland.
