Nose – Very sweet on the nose. Initially it is all creme caramel, caramelised fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. In time a charred note of bourbon with a pleasing dusty dryness.
Palate – A sweet start on the palate. The alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but adds some dried mint.
Finish – A deep and dark finish.
Nose – Herbal and grassy with sweetened smoke.
Palate – Chocolate oak over spicy, earthy smokiness. Complexity rolls over the tongue.
Finish – Smouldering burnt heather on Highland hills.
Nose – Salty notes with a balance of sweetness. Delicate, elegant and charming.
Palate – Juicy cut-grass freshness with a mouth-watering malty signature. Restrained sweetness caressed by soft oak.
Finish – Medium length. Oak balancing sweeter characteristics with a malty reprise.
