    This is absolutely fantastic, probably my favourite ever blend. For incredible value as well. Value (£49) : 9/10
    • Nose
      What stands out most to me is that wonderfully intriguing dunnage funk and wet moss note on the nose. Alongside that is a myriad of red berries, figs and sultanas. Big on candied orange peels. Rhubarb pie with a caramel sauce. Toasted pecans. Marzipan and ginger spice. A layer of bitter dark chocolate coating it all. This definitely smells well aged.
    • Taste
      Oily on the palate. Light initially it starts off very fresh orange forward. Then it gets darker and richer with more stewed fruits and chocolate ganache coming through. More rhubarb and an apple turnover. Dark roast coffee with your fruitcake. Drying tannins from the oak bring notes of tea leaves and tobacco. Some freshly cracked black pepper spice leads into the finish.
    • Finish
      This is long, with oils from the palate keeping it going. Again rather drying with those tannic notes but again big on chocolate oranges here in addition to the dunnage notes that return again. Some toffee sweetness returns in the finish.

    A beautiful malt blend. Fantastic, intriguing nose draws you in. Great mouthfeel. Flavours all over the tongue build and develop over time but very well balanced. Medium to long finish. Richness carried consistently from nose to finish. It doesn't let you down. I recommend as great value for money. Best blend I've had, I think. I've had the bottle open a couple of times over the last few days and it keeps getting better. This is whisky that has slept for 2 decades, so let it breath to get the best out of this. I would buy this again.

    A wonderful little 500ml bottling with a real personality. The flavour profile has a real campfire outdoors vibe. The finish is sublime, the nose a delight and the taste somehow languishes in the shadow of those. Overall, a terrific bottling.

      Spice, prune going long fading to leave rich dark chocolate and marshmellow.
