Cost: £50 approx
Appearance: Pale honey colour, straw yellows.
Aroma: Honey, raisins, rum, green apples, sweets, caramelised sugar and sherry.
Taste: Broad flat tones, sherry, tiny pepper notes, nuts, barley, grains and dried grass.
Mouthfeel: Oily, with tannins at the back of the mouth and a metallic ring.
Overall: Very drinkable, and reminiscent of a bourbon because of the young-oak peppery hits, but the balance seems to give away its Scottish origin.
