Nose
Oof, lots to like – buttery, bready, yeastiness mingling with those rich dried fruits of sultanas and figs. Strawberry jam on toast. Milk chocolate. Oranges.
Palate
Creamy, oily, with plenty of ginger warmth and custard. Strawberry jam and vanilla. Parmaviolets and dried apricots. Sultanas – plenty of those – and salted caramel.
Finish
Short, but very pleasing, with the parmaviolets and strawberry notes at the end.
Comment
Just a lovely everyday dram – essential for the cabinet.

Nose
Big with plenty going on. A note reminicent of hot doughnuts with rasperry jam and covered in icing sugar. Then a little burned, toasted oak comes through.
Palate
Big again with custard and stewed peaches, Grilled pineapples drizzled with honey and cinnamon. A little smoke too.
Finish
Short, a little smoke and honey sweetness, a hit if menthol as well.
Comment
Brilliant stuff, nicely balanced between what seems like a cask nish and a great peat level.
