'Dried fruit, chocolate and barley sugar'
A rich and mature nose with a robust character. It is reminiscent of dried fruit, perhaps figs and raisins, mixed with chocolate and spices (cloves and boiling sweets). There is a hint of leather and linseed oil giving an overall impression of warmth and depth of character.
With water, barley sugar emerges with mint humbugs and a hint of oak smoke. A whiff of peat is now noticeable.
Sweet, full and exceptionally well-rounded, the taste is smooth with a good firm body, meeting the expectations set from the rich, mature nose. The texture is gently oily and mouth-coating with chewy oak tannins. The flavour is initially of toffee, progressing to mint humbugs and barley sugar and followed by a hint of smoke and peat flavours.
Medium to long finish with a flavour and texture reminiscent of barley sugar and humbugs.

Note: Unfortunately we can only deliver whisky within Europe (excluding Denmark). But if you live elsewhere you can email Iain to see what other arrangements can be made. Due to customs regulations, we're afraid we are unable to despatch whisky to the US or Canada — but that gives you an even better excuse to come and visit us in person!
