Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonNice dry fruits, and is it leather? Quite well-balanced and promising. Prominent darker spices in the taste, really lively and tasty. Dried fruits and whiffs of smoke in the aftertaste. Quite lovely.
Keith WoodGlass: Classic Malt - Colour: Dark amber or even treacle toffee - Nose: Mixed nuts, currants, raisins, perhaps even prunes but there's also a hint of good old rubber wellies and something just a little 'red' too. - Palate: Initially that rich dark fruitiness from the nose dominates, but then the wellies return and just to complete the party it's all wrapped in a distinct creaminess. - Finish: Medium to long and very creamy. - Overall impression: Excellent fruitiness and that rubberiness is quite pleasant too so overall a very nice whisky.
