Nose: Fruity cox apples, vanilla pods, hoppy grist and lots of spice. Allow this dram to sit for an hour or so and it opens up further with gooseberries, cardamon and mixed herbs.
Palate: Bags of vanilla on the palate, sweet (almost bourbon-eske) and mouth coating.
Finish: Swift and spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, immensely warming and moreish.
Overall: This grain whisky offers amazing value considering its age but it also packs plenty of complex flavours.
