Nose
Intense. Rich toffee, candied orange. Creamy custard. Freshly baked bread.
Palate
Smooth and velvety. Fruit and oak are well integrated. Dundee cake. But midpalate is watery. Then spices gives it a kick. Ginger and whitepepper. A smoky touch (burnt wood ?).
Finish
Dry, spicy, very pleasant.
Comment
A lovely whisky with a hole in the middle ! A higher alcohol strength would have made a big difference.

Nose
Kicks off with spicy notes, warming ginger and mellow nutmeg, actually custard tart. A faint whiff of smoke in the background.
Palate
Balanced, notes of sherry, cinnamon and nutmeg coming through. Some Christmas spices and pudding notes.
Finish
Drying and slightly nutty.
Comment
A wonderfully smooth whisky, nicely balanced indeed.
