Nose
Reminiscent of a hot toddy,ginger, vanilla,brown sugar with a twist of lemon citrus. Some spice as well.
Palate
That vanilla note comes through more with a delicate spiced orange.
Finish
Long with the oak coming through.
Comment
A stunner… but why just Duty Free? Share the love.

Nose
Soft and sweet. Pear crumble.
Palate
Initially sweet and fruity,then a trace of almond and apple pip,and finally a tidal wave of pepper and peat.
Finish
Peaty,spicy and quite long.
Comment
A surprise for a Macallan – but a pleasant one.
