Nose: Sweet and grassy, with touches of marzipan and dark fruit. Some spirity notes, ginger, yeasty bread dough, single cream and chocolatey oak.
Palate: Sweet cream and rich caramel, berry laden yoghurt, a touch of brown sugar and gentle sweet oak.
Finish: Cream and white sugar, slowly turning to woody spice, twigs and gently sour fruit.
Comment: The hints of spirit from the nose stay resolutely out of the body, giving a light and sweet whisky with some good creaminess. Less full on than many port cask matured whiskies I've tried and the better for it.
On the Eye: Deep gold & brassy
On the Nose: Moderately intense aromatics, fruit chocolates, caramel, butterscotch, Turkish delight, crème Brule, plum pudding rum soaked raisins, hint of cider
On the Palate: Creamy texture, sweet and delicately spicy, fruitcake, caramel, licorice & sweet malt.
The Finish: Long. Vanilla bean laced with spiced raisins.

Nose: A delicate balance of white flowers, vanilla ripe summer fruits, with a sweetened cream drizzled over the top. About as summery a whisky you could ask for.
Palate: The first sip gives way to notes of liquorice, lemon grass, some toasted oak and a darker, richer fruitiness, think blackcurrant, toasted vanilla, dark chocolate, a touch of spice and notes of leather and lemon zest.
Finish: subtle and balanced.
Balance between spirit and wood character is spot on!
