A smooth, beautifully structured and well-paced Speyside malt with a rich texture and a balance of sweet fruit, dark chocolate, toffee and spice. A great aperitif!
Appearance: Rich amber, in sunlight becoming antique gold.
Nose: Shy and soft at first, and beautifully smooth: fresh, yet also mellow. Tinned fruit salad, with waxy red apple skins.
Palate: Bigger flavours and drier than the nose suggests, with its initial sweetness cut by crisp orange zest followed by a subtle mineral dryness.
Finish: Tangy hints of menthol with velvety cocoa tannins and a grassy herbal note. Faint hints of almonds and apples follows a light saltiness.
Alcohol Content: 40%
Review: “Distinct honey on the nose with some clean, firm grain followed by rich malt. Exotic fruit follows with mango and kiwi. Some grassiness and light note of peat way in the background. Big entry into the mouth with immediate wave of ripe malt which brings out some spicy notes and hints of vanilla. All the while there seems to be a little rumble of peat way back in the rear. Soft, satisfying finish.” – www.iwsc.net, 2015.
