Nose
Cinnamon-dusted oranges and apricots and brightness of physalis. Wander through the distillery, past the maltings and into the fermentation room, to a smell from fermentation in the washbacks.
Palate
Velvety soft and easy drinking at first, then a touch of sour beer. Milk chocolate, corn crisps and orange peel, sweet cinnamon, walnuts and hazelnuts, plus green tree sap.
Finish
Medium-length, with some physallis and more apricot coming in.
Comment
Have this as a half-and-half with a lambic, perhaps?

Nose
Fudge, praline and marzipan. Milk chocolate. Turkish Delight. Nutmeg and fennel then classical dried fruits. Madeira cake. Very attractive.
Palate
s compliments charming oily sweetness: sultanas, apricots, stewed apples and heather honey. Ginger warmth, drizzled in custard.
Finish
The apples, honey and ginger all linger with the pleasing aftertaste of a tasty pudding.
Comment
Beautiful whisky. Just tasty, good old-fashioned stuff. More of this, please.
