Nose
Quite earthy and herbaceous with some pine needles in there too.
Palate
Caramel, honey, and dried at first, then more woody and spicy flavours come to the party.
Finish
Medium length finish, tannic flavours from the barrel dry the mouth.
Comment
A drop of water helps soften up this quite high strength whisky, making it more mellow and approachable.

Gavin D. Smith

77
Nose
Quite shy, mildly floral, rose blossom. Soft toffee in time.
Palate
Quite substantial, with overt orchard fruits and milk chocolate.
Finish
More chocolate and cream, and gentle spices.
Comment
Perfectly sound, but lacks much development.
