Nose: Faint smoke then some fruit : apple and grassy notes. Vanilla, Ginger, and a faint trace of liquorice.

Palate : Pepper on entry then quite a bit of peat. Not heavy peat but more than a little bit for sure. Grapefruit. Wood and quite dry towards the end, quite creamy to.

Finish: Long. Very dry. Peat. Bitter wood. Smoke.

Lovely elegance and a well balanced blend of olden days. Both batches should have a similar taste profile, but i find the first one a bit nicer IMHO. This is a teriffic looking bottle and packaging, and although it’s not the best BFYB, it would making an amazing present for every whisky lover, and the proceeds go to a very noble cause. If you have a nice whisky collection, then this is a fine addition. Not really recommended for beginners, or those who are on a budget and want to get the best value for money.
