  1. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Producer's Tasting Note:

    Nose: Malt and oak mingle with brown sugar, vanilla toffee, candied orange, cinnamon and ginger.

    Palate: Velvety, with blossom honey, oak vanilla, a touch of citrus and low-key spiciness.

    Finish: Gentle, lingering waves of vanilla and oak spices.
