Nose: 23.5/25 now if you really want to know what heather smells like, invest in a bottle of this: rarely do you come across it in such unabridged form…even if it’s Scapa!!; seriously botanical all round;
Taste: 23/25 thick malt, a touch of light honey;
Finish: 21/25 long, toffeed;
Balance: 23/25 yet another gem from the Master of Malt (fudgy finish apart). His portfolio is pretty damned impressive, I must say.
