Highland Park 12yo, 40%

Subtle peat and smoke and wood; lighter grassy notes too. Some sweetness comes in on the mouth. Warm, lingering finish.

Seems pretty complex on first taste. Hard to summarise. (It's been a long day.)

One to come back to, I think.

Adnams Single Malt Whisky, 43% (Whisky no 1)

Hmmm. It certainly doesn't taste a day over 3 years old. Yes there's some honey in there- but there's not much else in this harsh young spirit. Needs a few more years in the barrel. 

Sorry, but if we have to compare new East Anglian whiskies, the Norfolk one is nicer...
