Nose
Icing sugar, caramel and milk chocolate. A sprinkling of white pepper and ginger, fresh pineapple and a hint of cloves.
Palate
Smooth and silky, with milk chocolate orange, fondant creams and soft spices.
Finish
Gentle fruit spices, hazelnuts and a suggestion of dark orange.
Comment
Another interesting and more complex departure from the ‘standard' Master Distiller's Reserve, but not sure it's worth twice the price of the Solera Vatted expression.

Joe Bates

76
Nose
Honeycomb and sultanas.
Palate
Creamy, sweet and very smooth.
Finish
Medium length, with a subtle hint of oak.
Comment
A very easy to drink whisky.
