” Nose: Ripe soft and pillow like with hints of smoke and toasty wood. Citrus leaf, cocoa, cooked apricot, ripe banana, hazelnut giving a crunch. Palate: Toffee sweetness stretches along the palate. Very clean and clear. Sweet with sultana and cherry. The finish is long and silky. Relaxed and laid back. This is excellent blending”. (Dave Broom Whisky Magazine)

“Delicate and complex aroma of tropical fruit and caramel”
