Nose: Sweet and creamy, with lots of cereal notes, some vanilla, dried fruits, citrus and apple crumble. Palate: A gentle, creamy whisky, which develops a great deal of richness. Notes of Christmas spices, lemon, buttery apple crumble, Bakewell tart, rose petals and raisins. Finish: Rich and sweet, with a long finish which tails off with notes of quince jelly, shortbread and spices. Overall: Incredibly quaffable, an excellent whisky, and a definite crowd pleaser.
