Nose: A fruit salad of apple and melon drizzled with lime juice followed by apple, parma ham and damp heather. Before long aromas of kelp emerge and hold the fort.
Palate: The mouth-feel is light with an initial burst of fruit which becomes particularly lemony with time.
Finish: The finish is long and consistent with notes of Scotch tablet and then strong mineral notes of sand and white pepper.
Overall: This whisky offers value for money along with an incredible consistency
