No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Gentle, with heather, mild ginger, apricots and malt.
Palate: Smooth, sweetly fruity, nicely balanced. Soft fruit notes become more pronounced.
Finish: Medium length, slightly oaky.\n
Comment: By no means a bad dram, but a little bitter in the finish.
Nose: A drop of water is needed to open some gentle citrus and honey notes.
Palate: It has quite a creamy mouth-feel. Caramel, vanilla and honey jostle for attention with the alcohol heat, but not too much else is going on here.
Finish: A medium-length finish, mostly sweet.
Comment: A little underwhelming. The flavours feel a bit muddled and undeveloped and the relatively high strength delivers a burn which needs taming.
