Nose
Silvestry. Damp earth, pine needles. Chestnut purée. Vanilla merges through the wood. Peppermint tea. A smoky medicinal whiff coming through with a creosote note.
Palate
Velvety, smooth. The creosote is coming through grassy flavours. Fresh cider. Lemon pie.
Finish
Slightly fizzy then fruit (lemon drops).
Comment
Reveals a rich profile by a succession of aromatic layers. Alcohol is perfectly tamed.

Nose
Elegant and refined with peat smoke to the fore. Raisin, heather and dried fruits. Has real maturity. Light spice and coal dust.
Palate
Rich ripe and long with great layers of dried fruit and subtle scented ash like woodsmoke. Some sweet spice. Multifaceted.
Finish
Spicy. Ashes yet a real life.
Comment
Atypical for a Speysider for sure but what a phenomenal dram this is.
