TASTING NOTES

From STUART PESKETT (TWE)

NOSE Fresh, inviting aromas of lemon peel, butter shortbread and stem ginger, with a fragrant grassy note.

PALATE Fresh and fruity at first, then richer, malted-biscuit notes arrives, as well as sweet banana bread, toffee and vanilla custard.

FINISH Clean, bright and fruity – very easy to drink.

10 Year Old
Single Malt Whisky

£39.95

This single malt whisky, aged for 10 years, is a classic Speyside dram. Matured in sherry casks, you'll find delicious notes of tropical fruit alongside Christmas spices and a touch of honey for a silky, stylish finish. A rich, complex, whisky that deserves to be savoured.

TASTING NOTES

From STUART PESKETT (TWE)

NOSE Very floral and fruity, with red-berry fruit and cherries sitting alongside classic Speyside notes of freshly cut apple and pear.

PALATE Soft, silky mouthfeel, with a touch of Christmas spice mixed in with aromatic fruitiness – pear, peach and mango. There's a sweet honeyed note, too, along with a sprinkling of clove and black pepper.

FINISH The soft honeyed fruit lingers well with the spice.

The House of Lords is the second chamber of the UK Parliament and it is based in the iconic Palace of Westminster. It provides a second opinion in Parliament on draft laws, public policy and government action.
