Nose
Mature, with Madeira-like dried fruit rancio of oxidised grape. The grain spirit dried fruit notes come through along with sherrywood spice and coffee, hot Shredded Wheat and a light, freshening citrus.
Palate
Elegant, citric and spiced with dried grape and barley. The sherry is subtle and comes through along with juicy dried fruit, treacle and grain spirit.
Finish
Long and beautifully spiced with plenty of dried fruit.
Comment
This proves that when you get the oak balance right with a grain and a sherry cask, it's a great combination.

Nose
Crunchy Nut Cornflakes are the first note out of the glass, with a hint of lily of the valley and lavender. Heather and more honey come through the back of the nose.
Palate
Very drinkable, this is oily and big with lots and lots of sweet honey notes of heather and vanilla all in abundance here. Doesn't shy away from its region.
Finish
Wonderfully sweet with peaches and cream. Long and lingering.
Comment
A bold example of honeyed, sweet grain whisky. Very good indeed.
