Distillery

House Style: The most honeyish of malts, with a distinctively orangey note.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Jim Murray

Nose: A close relation to the Founder's Reserve, with extra vanilla and honey plus the subtlest of Oloroso influences. Delicate for its age.

 

Palate: Sweet and honeyed with intense malt meeting the soft peat and controlled sherry fruitiness.

 

Finish: Smoky and a little spicy with a bigger vanilla tang.

 

Comment: A more intense malt than the Founder's Reserve. Despite its finesse, it is just shaded in regard to all-round complexity. Still nothing short of glorious.
