Tasting Notes

Ledaig 10 Year Old:
Nose: Sweet briny smokiness with a distinctly island character that hints at mild antiseptic, creosote, wax polish, rich mint chocolate and floral, refreshing seaside aromas.
Palate: Tantalisingly sweet yet medicinal flavours release sparks of spicy pepper with peaty smoke and vanilla malty creaminess.
Finish: Spicy white pepper and sweet vibrant liquorice and cloves with a lingering saltiness.

Balcones Texas Single Malt:
Nose: Notes of fresh baked banana bread with undertones of honey, vanilla and a hint of cedar wood. There is also tones of roasted chestnuts and full cream.
Palate: Ester notes with apple and orchard fruits. Brown sugar makes an appearance and transforms into molasses.
Finish: Warm, woody spices and subtle hints of breadiness, but not maltiness.

Teeling Single Malt:
Nose: Intense with white grape juice on the nose which is then joined by fresh malt as it then develops into delicious white chocolate the longer it's in the glass.
Palate: An elegant expression with well placed fruit, backed up with a hint of satisfying cinnamon and white pepper. A touch of dried flowers develop along the way with strawberries.
Finish: Strawberries carry on into the finish, with double cream too as all in all this is a truly ace offering from Teeling.

Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside Liqueur:
Nose: Rich leather notes, hints of cedar, cigar leaves, toffee apples, old sherry and woodsheds.
Palate: Rich and oaky with notes of soft wood smoke, manuka honey, rum spice and cinnamon.
Finish: Beautiful length, fading away on damson jam, barley and nutmeg.

Benriach 16 Year Old:
Nose: A wonderful intricate tale of ground hazelnuts, thinly spread manuka honey, marzipan and malt.
Taste: Silky malt and delicate honey enlivened by soft spices: a sub-stratum of fruit weaves gently through the malt.
Finish: A touch of smoke offers a little weight to the developing vanilla.
