Nose
Discrete and restrained. Light fruit and flowers. Marshmallow. Turkish delight. Orange drop. A touch of barley sugar. All aromas aredimmed,likeawashdrawing. On time delivers spices.
Palate
Smooth with a broader expression than on the nose. Quite spicy. Ginger and wasabi.
Finish
Dry but soothing with fresh almond notes.
Comment
A whispering whisky,especially on the nose. Will not stand in front of big guys in tastings.But I like its fresh delicacy.

Nose
Soft,with beeswax,rich honey,winter barley squash.
Palate
Clean and soft,sweet melon,mixed fruits. Pleasant but unspectacular.
Finish
Soft,sweet and quite more-ish.
Comment
Really that old? Perhaps it's a bit tired.
