General description

I like many of the GM private selections including Tusail and Astar. Bacalta joins the ranks, aged roughly 10 yrs in bourbon casks then 2 yesrs in Madeira wine casks. Nose is mild but palate shares the GM gene of etherial, heavenly fruits developing into nuts. Caramel not prominent but undertone of honey and orange.

lightly sweet, warms the whole mouth and very smooth. Perfect for those that like an easy drinking mildly complex whisky.

General description

classic GM profile under bright sweet sugared notes with some spice, pepper and malt. good balance makes for a pleasant ant not cloying sweet scotch.

General description

A very nice mix of sweet and lightly spicy flavours. Juicy, with a medium to long finish. The only negative aspect imho is the slightly too prominent golden raisin flavour, which I personally don't like that much.

Nose

Very nice. Sweet, tropical fruit, butterscotch syrup, caramel, Brown sugar, cappuccino and baking spices.

Palate

Sweet again, but with a spiciness that's more prominent than in the nose. Sultanas, notes of cinnamon, burnt caramel and a light bitterness of pineapple core or orange peel.

Finish

California raisins and a faint oaky dryness.
