Nose
Spiced pears in white wine, aromatic wood notes (cedar and sandalwood) with a creamy Bourbonesque note, back-dropped by golden syrup. What's not to like here?
Palate
The spiced orchard fruits continue onto the palate, with some additional tangerine sweetness, fresh cherries and vanilla.
Finish
Oaky, yet, light and rich, with the vanilla leaving the biggest impression.
Comment
A continuation from the previous, in terms of style, with definite notes of citrus and pleasant oak.

Nose
Like walking past a working sawmill or carpenter's workshop, gentle rum and raisin, toasted marshmallows, coconut milk, macaroons, kiwi fruit and freshly opened pencil boxes.
Palate
Sweet and fruity with a warm Danish pastry and custard note. A brief spice hit but then it seems to disappear mid palate. A slight bitter oak bite.
Finish
Crisp, clean with toffee notes lingering.
Comment
A decent well put together whisky.
