Nose: Malty, nutty, heather honey and peaches. It almost smells of the wash-backs it is so malty.  Then this lovely sweetness powers through. Very promising! I almost thought they may have used other grains, like rye, because it had such a prominent grainy, malty nose.

Palate: Zesty and grapey. Call me crazy (Lucas frequently does) but a slight taste of Ribena! Creamy and hints of white chocolate. It really doesn’t need water. A very smooth dram. I have to add water though, just for my own inquisitiveness

Ww: It goes in a citrusy direction. Grassy and green apples.

Finish: Orangey and warming.

Overall: An Awesome whisky! Very drinkable. Dangerously drinkable. Sadly, as far as I understand it, they are not distilling anymore. The stills were dismantled in 1999.

And this is the tower! I wish I had known about Milford Whisky then. It may have steadied my nerves!
