Comment: Exceptionally smooth and easy to drink – a real ‘reach for the bottle’ dram.
Nose: Stewed apples and brown sugar, hazelnut purée, rose petals, barley sugar, fudge. Sweet, floral and rich. Delightful.
Palate: A little woody spice, some sweet orchard fruit, liquorice, a dusting of soot and creamy fudge. There’s also a touch of fresh apple juice.
Finish: Lingering apple skin, raisins and a touch of oak.
Comment: Solid, dependable and very well made. Really ticks all the boxes.
