Nose
Floral, with rose petals, ripe apples, chocolate-coated Turkish Delight and caramel bonbons.
Palate
Initially, soft, with mildly spicy chocolate and honey, then intense fruit and milk chocolate flavours develop.
Finish
Bitter orange and plain chocolate, with a ripple of chilli.
Comment
Master Distiller's Reserve takes a new and attractive direction.

Caramel and vanilla are the key aromas in this rich, creamy whisky.
Palate
Honey is the predominant flavour along with vanilla and toasted coconut.
Finish
Long, creamy and sweet.
Comment
All in all, a creamy, rather moreish whisky.
