A comforting dram, cheery, brings in visions of a warm summer day in the country.
Aged 15 Years
Nose: Earthy, wet moss, turf. Fruity as well. Juicy pears. Cereal notes rise up in a fragrant spiral of honey and ripe hay. Appetising.
Palate: Malty sweetness teased by a spicy edge. The cereal is dominant. Mueslï. Rich, fulfilled.
Finish: Long, balanced with a wave of liquorice. A hint of smoked wood.
Comment: A comforting dram, cheery, brings in visions of a warm summer day in the country.
Nose: Robust, autumnal: raked leaves and toasted chestnut. Some dried pear and a syrupy sweetness. Water brings bran flakes then peanut.
Palate: Soft, slow and slightly creamy. Picks up from mid palate onwards. Silky and deep.
Finish: Great length.
Comment: Very well balanced and with immediate appeal, exactly what you want from a vatted malt.
