Nose
Rich, complex. Surprisingly fresh and frisky. Waves of honeyed fruit. Cherry plums, pears, peaches. In the back that “divine scent” note that old Speysiders exhale, a mix of incense and bee waxed pew.
Palate
Gentle and caressing. With the same aromatic display that the nose promised. Lots of passion fruit.
Finish
Drying on soft spices. Oak is melted into fruit. Dry almond aftertaste.
Comment
A pure beauty. The age without the wrinkles...

Nose
Green fresh hay, ferns, hamster boxes. Custard cream biscuits and some heavy floral notes.
Palate
That fern note comes through, sweet but slightly bitter and gripping oak, gooseberries and tropical fruit.
Finish
Oak sweetness and then a bitter dryness follows.
Comment
A belter, everything in well balanced and sings together.
