The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Another blended whisky icon.  This nose was nice but not too forthcoming, a little sweet malt and perhaps some oak.    The taste had honey, vanilla, some dark fruits like plums, and some fudge.  Spice builds into the finish and then hangs around along with some dark chocolate and coffee.  Lots of flavors going on and pretty good.
