An award-winning whisky with wonderful sweetness and warmth, intertwined with just a thread of smoke. Rich and soft but still assertive.
Nose: Rich and fruity Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind.
Body: Full bodied, pleasant and smooth.
Palate: Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.
Finish: Medium length with the characteristic chilli 'catch' in the finish.
