    Palate - Mild fruit, white pepper, oak and caramel with a hint of pecan smoke. 

    Finish - Mild with red delicious apple fruit, white pepper, cinnamon and oak.

      Smell of fresh fruit, highlands and a little bit of Islay, this is something real good.

      87 87
      Bit smoky but a lot more of a highland taste.
