The whisky is of a light golden colour and has wonderfully textured nose of heather Honey with hints of cinnamon and toffee bonbon. Very subtle hints of peat smoke. The palate is of creamy vanilla spice giving way to more overt smoky charcoal notes, especially with the addition of water. that said, the smoke doesn’t dominate and is balanced by the sweet honey and spice flavours. All in all this is a full bodied whisky with silky mouth feel and a dry, tangy and lingering aftertaste.
