    Single grain whiskies need lots of time to mature but when they do they can be as complex and rewarding as malt whisky for a fraction of the price. This is a great example.
    • Nose
      Immediately demonstrates that complexity on the nose. Honey, caramel, red berry fruits and a whole nut basket with pecan, walnut and hazlenuts.
    • Taste
      Very rich. More of the red fruit but also some stewed pears. Citrus but more like limoncello than fresh fruit. After the whisky has sat on my palate for a while I get mocha and dark chocolate mixed with the fruit. It really reminds be of the Lindt fruit sensation sweets. I found this whisky really did not need any water but when added the mocha notes come quicker.
    • Finish
      A long finish. Some bitterness but not in a bad way. More of that mocha and the rich oak comes through. When I first left school I worked for a year in a sawmill and the finish brings back the smell of freshly cut hardwood timber. A cracker of a grain and if you bought it when it was first released an absolute bargain.
