Nose
There's a (house?) style seemingly shared between this trio which centres on real sweetness and instantly appealing aromas. This has some dark fruits and dried tangerine peel, marmalade, barley flour and malt.
Palate
Assertive and nutty. Lightly herbal with some leather. Becomes softer and layered with some jammy fruits. It's whisky as a New World wine.
Finish
Glossy. Jammy.
Comment
Nice.. really nice but not with a wow factor.

Nose
Big waves of cream toffee, tablet, cream sherry. Stewed oranges and brown sugar.
Palate
Quite sweet but the spices are lurking, cinnamon and cloves.
Finish
Long with sweet peat.
Comment
Seems a little thin at first until the spices roll out.
