    Another distillery I rarely engage with ever since the PR Viking nonsense began some years ago now. And then, there was the sudden profile change, almost as if they’d replaced their old-style [transport] sherry casks with the syrup seasoned jobs, overnight.

    N: Contemporary raisins [of course], yet bone-dry, a touch coppery, lactose-y, and yeasty too. Perhaps we’re not too far from contemporary sherry-ish [12yo] Bowmore?

    T: This really works at strength, but even better with a little water which promotes the squidgy spirity-soft sultana profile towards a clean sherried slightly coppery lactose corner [a la, the nose], but it’s the bone-dry nature that continues to impress.

    F: That’s about it. The spirit is clear cut, the cask merely the vessel [no pun intended].

    C: A rather clean simple HP that does a few things rather well. Perhaps a little monotone to want for a full bottle, but I’m certainly good for one or two drams.
