Nose
Intense citrus followed by lemon and honey drizzle cake. Baked apples with golden sultanas. With water, lemon posset with a smidgen of star anise.
Palate
The sauce of sticky lemon chicken and star fruit. Water made it more buttery with a pastry case and shortbread sprinkled with sugar.
Finish
Soft and sticky, clean and a short finish.
Comment
Deceptively simple. Very easy drinking whisky

82
Nose
A fresh and gristy nose of lightly herbal, rich, refill sherry, barley, fleshy gala apple and hints of perfumed white flowers. With time the aromas become quite malty with a developing liquorice and treacle note.
Palate
Opens with plenty of mouth-filling creamy toffee moving into moist fruit cake territory. Seriously juicy and raisiny with hints of plum, malt, treacle and liquorice.
Finish
Long with the raisinated fruit lingering, gentle spice and a late cognac-esque dried fruit rancio. Lightly herbal.
Comment
Grouse? Really? I'm impressed!
