Key Information

Light gold. Very smooth. Hints of aniseed and raisins with a lime freshness.

Tangerine and fruit flavours with a definite sweetness in the aftertaste. Light, fresh and clean.

Still one of the best 10 year old aromas you can find, a showcase for the Lowlands.

Though not a particularly complex whisky, it's still utterly delightful - I find it has a nose of American oak, wood smoke, raspberries, lemon zest, aniseed, violets, vanilla, toffee and butterscotch, and a palate along the same lines, with a long and enjoyable finish. It's very smooth due to the triple distillation and the oak flavours - it's actually somewhat like a really good Bourbon, though with the all important Scottish peat flavours. Highly recommended.
