Silver Medal 2016

Dense, mature honey and youthful, herbal spirit aromas. Becomes quite oily with hints of tangerine, gooseberry and a subtle baked fruit note. Lightly smokey with a hint of vanilla oak. This whisky is soft and oily, with mature baked fruit, coffee and wood spice. The oak encroaches on the middle covering the balancing citrus notes. In the finish it wakes up as the rye-like herbal notes come rushing through. Light milk chocolate after-taste - a superb finish.

Slight nose, quite bright, but then it opens to reveal gooseberries underlayen by lemon and lime. In time a muesli note comes to the fore.

The tongue is enveloped in a creamy sweetness heightened by a mouthwatering peppery spicy topping.

The sweetness continues on the finish, and the citrus returns. This is a well structured dram with a nice interplay between sweetness and spice.
