Nose
Sugared almonds. Fudge. Chocolates in a box.
Palate
Honeyed dryness. Dark liquid honey. Flavours gradually emerging. Restrained citrus, orange, then lemon.
Finish
Mixed spices. Slight ginger.
Comment
Lots of flavour but restrained and well balanced. Very confident. If there is a Speyside style, surely this is it.

Ian Wisniewski

77
Nose
Spicy, fruity overture, then caramel sauce and fruit syrup, with fudge and butterscotch.
Palate
Smooth, mellow, subtle baked apples with spicy gingerbread, citrus, pear drops, some underlying dry oakyness and clove.
Finish
Subtle poached fruit sweetness and dry, spicy oak.
Comment
Fruit-driven with spice and oak extending the spectrum and adding gravitas.
