|Distillery: Firmer, drier notes from soft vanilla to crisp grape. Sweeter, nuttier tones come from the malted barley and cask wood.|
|Distillery: Dry, after early biscuit-sweetness. Enormous malt character contrasts with the fruitiness of the grape.|
|Distillery: Very long, dry, oaky. Very faint peppery notes add spice, softened by very late caramel.|
