Nose
Dusty, mature Oloroso with orange peel. Treacly, smoky and pruney with bonfire embers, green nuts, camphor, dark roasted coffee and a touch of chocolate orange.
Palate
Soft and mellow with dark honey and treacle, burnt wood, smoke and green nuts. Plenty of oxidised fruit character and bitter chocolaty tannins.
Finish
Long and crisp with lingering dark honey tannins, sweet spice and raisinated fruit. Slightly astringent green nut after-taste.
Comment
A lovely, clean and sherry matured Spey.

Nose
A phenomenal nose of bright strawberries, cherries, and red apples which meet the delicate-yet-omnipresent oak notes perfectly. An old head on young shoulders.
Palate
And here we go again with the palate. A cornucopia of flavours, from the dark black cherry through to the rich vanilla and the oak, which sparks throughout.
Finish
The whole thing continues through to the finish, which is perfectly balanced.
Comment
What a well-balanced whisky, full of flavour and poise.
