A very nice whisky indeed, and even better at this price

  • On the nose it is fragrant with citrus (orange peel), flowers (freesia), spice, and a hint of cream-filled choux pastry. Water pulls out more of the weighty malty notes. The palate is a mid-weight in a malt that's softer than the nose initially suggests. Great momentum in the mouth with cranachan, soft baked fruits, fruit cake, syrup, apricot and malt. It dances on the tongue with a finish that bursts into life.

  • 2015 Silver Outstanding Medal Winner - International Wine & Spirits Competition
  • IWSC Awards Tasting Note: Well contained nose opens with some ripe orange with a hint of peat in the distance. Sultanas and dried apricot are there with some hints of cocoa. Full in the mouth where rich malt makes a statement. Well integrated oak. Another whisp of smoke in long finish.

I've never tasted this whisky, but doesn't fall for award stickers. They pay to enter, and they pay for the stickers. telegraph.co.uk/foo…tml
