Spicy oils, grasses, dry fruit cake greet the nose in a pleasant somewhat understated fashion. Soft light ginger dominates the palate again in an understated way. It is "there" but almost too softly. Still a very pleasant sipping dram for those of a lighter persuasion.

Rich Xmas pudding, ginger, almonds on the nose. The palate is treated to a hint of dry grass with caramel and toffee. Initially there was a wee edge but it faded away. Need to go back to this one a few more times. Not sure I got entirely what it has to deliver. It is very good.
