Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Rocky

Nose: Rich and pronounced fresh-fruit notes: apple, pineapple and papaya, with malt and toffee in the background, along with a hint of cinnamon.

Palate: The richness continues, but with the fruit notes of apple and pineapple superseded by prominent notes of nut and spice: hazelnut, nutmeg and clove.

Finish: Medium to long, with the fruit and nut slowly dissipating to leave the spicy flavours.

Comment: A rich and spicy whisky, with the added complexity that the additional year’s maturation gives, compared to its predecessor. It may not be priced in the everyday whisky bracket, but its approachability and fullness of flavour mean it’s not a whisky that should only be enjoyed on special occasions.

Producer's Notes

Appearance: Medium gold with a rich glow.

Nose: Awash with red apple, ripe melon and fresh banana. Heavenly and well rounded, it drifts into hot porridge topped with brown sugar.

Initial taste: Full bodied, round and rich. At first macerated fruits, marzipan and walnuts; then warm spices, dry cocoa and lingering Seville marmalade.

Finish: Long, warm and dry.

Comments: Remarkable depth. Each glass unveils more layers.

A very moorish "dram", not up to the 17-year old but very near to it in flavour and after taste. A whisky I would recommend to friends.

My favourite whisky. So smooth.
- Pete , 4th September
This whisky is simply stunning - I first tried this at a food fair in London and decided to get a bottle straight away. Given the price, it's not a whisky to be drunk every day, but when you do have a dram, it's velvety smooth, subtle and complex. The maturation in sherry casks also ensure that it has a round and warming finish.
