Nose
Pleasant aromas of herbal re-fill sherry and hints of barley. Good depth with developing coffee, honey and a whiff of smoke.
Palate
Quite sweet with apricot and barley. The citrus and stony notes take the edge off the sweetness. It darkens towards the middle as the malt and treacle coated sherried dried fruit appears.
Finish
Long and crisp with the citrus and mineral notes continuing to balance the treacly sherry.
Comment
Not the most complex of malts on the planet but the balance and the finish are quite impressive.

Nose
A bold nose like a punchy Bordeaux wine. Ginger, green coffee beans and blood orange.
Palate
Oak spices, rhubarb and custard with lavender shortbread. Some red travel sweets come through.
Finish
The oak is most present in the finish with a hint of liquorice and Earl Grey tea.
Comment
This is certainly a pleasant whisky, but a little uninspiring for me.
