The squat bottle makes the whisky look a very inviting dark amber colour and cute red squirrel on the label is a nice touch too. The description on the packaging of this malt purports a heather honey nose, full bodied and rounded and a dry elegant finish with spicy characteristics and a hint of Seville oranges.

It pours a much paler amber into the glass from which there is certainly some honey in the aromas, and maybe a slight heathery note too along with some malt. It’s quite unusual to find accurate label descriptions which make me think their usually cooked up by marketing gurus rather than the people who make the whisky. Medium rather than full bodied with a pleasant malty flavour complemented by some sherry and honey again. Nothing challenging here but the mellow bittersweet flavours are lovely.

The label was right about the drier finish the sweetness does not last, but as for spicy notes and Seville oranges they never turned up, at least not in my bottle.
