Nose
Minerally, with hot slates, some rye spiciness, black cherry, liquorice and slightly tarry rope, with a pronounced Bourbon sweetness.
Palate
Sweet,very creamy, with coconut milk, a touch of parma violet, fresh ripe cherries, a slice of mango and vanilla.
Finish
Sweet wheatiness, a touch of rye spice and a solid foundation of malty bread.
Comment
It pulls in a number of directions, but each one is equally interesting and exciting. Terrific stuff.

Rob Allanson

82
Nose
Wonderful earthy, leafy tones, autumnal walks through the woods Seasoning tobacco leaves, toasted marshmallow, polished oak floorboards, rattan baskets, toasted sesame seeds and soy sauce.
Palate
Initially very savoury, sesame seeds and prawn toast, then the sweetness builds up. Maple syrup, honey roast peanuts and lemon drizzle cake.
Finish
Big, grippy and lush.
Comment
A serious whisky that demands your full attention.
