Silver Medal 2015
Powerful and spirited, with pronounced spicy cereal, a touch of nail varnish and very subtle vanilla. Hot at first (water is definitely needed here) with a lovely peppery dryness, sweet cherries, some parma violet notes, cloves and star anise.
Those woody spices dominate at first, but a gentler side (especially the vanilla and ripe banana) develop as the conversation continues.
Quality whisky making here; everything sits nicely and at exactly the right volume.
