Wonderfully full flavoured, mature, and eminently drinkable.

No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Black cherry sauce, blackberry jam, spearmint leaf, and leather-bound books. Aromatic, resinous woods, like sandalwood and oud. Treacle tart and hedgerows. Burnt pastry and cumin.
Palate: Medium-full. Pomegranate juice, charred pineapple, toffee, chocolate fudge brownie, and olive oil. Stewed apples, pears, and fruits of the forest. Brown sugar pastry twists. A little sage, too.
Finish: Medium-long. Brown sugar remains as the herbal note builds.
Comment: Wonderfully full flavoured, mature, and eminently drinkable.
Nose: Nutty oak and subtle sherry with big vanilla and biscuity notes, like a New York cheesecake. Pumpkin-spiced latte, barbecue-smoked apple and pear, and poppy-seed bagel. Reece’s Pieces (milk chocolate and peanut butter).
Palate: Medium. Milk chocolate and peanut-butter cup. Cornflake cereal. Chocolate soy milk. Darker fruit (fig, black cherry, redcurrant) with gentle caramel. Savoury smoked bacon.
Finish: Long. Peanut butter and bacon.
Comment: A tasty and warming campfire whisky.
