Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: butterscotch and pecans, juicy malt and a touch of gentle peat; fresh picked oranges, a faint hint of melon, beeswax and green garden notes; wet coffee grinds and some baker's chocolate.

Palate: creamy, very honeyed (more beeswax), juicy malt and loads of white chocolate ( it is sweet); the darker peat, coffee and chocolate notes are there but balanced along with some crisp smoke and gentle peat; the palate remains fresh, fruity and layered with late spices and more butterscotch.

Finish: light and lively but long with fading sweet notes and fruits.

Comment: tasting this is a reminder of how much I enjoy this whisky, it is truly superb.

Distiller's Tasting Note

Nose: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Big, but seductively gentle too.

Taste: The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vague sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) - the custard presumably is oaky vanilla - hammers home that barley - fruitiness to make for a bit of a free-for-all; but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolutely resonates through the palate.

Finish: A slight struggle here as the mouthfeel gets a bit puffy here with the dry peat and oak; enough molassed sweetness to see the malt through to a satisfying end, though. Above all the spices, rather than lying down and accepting their fate, rise up and usher this extraordinary whisky to its exit.
