Nose
Bruised plum, kumquat, apple and banana with caster sugar. Turkish Delight and rose water. Candied almonds, nutmeg, cinnamon, Bourbon oak.
Palate
Lightly oiled, estery, sweet, tropical fruit – apricot, banana, pineapple and apple. Cinnamon and a light, herbal rye-like note with hints of rose water. Juicy, balancing minerality.
Finish
Long and spicy with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg lingering along with the perfumed rose Turkish Delight.
Comment
Has a Highland distillery dabbled in triple distillation? Either way it's a fabulous whisky!

Charles Montanaro

Nose
Light cereal grains and heather to begin with, quickly disappearing to make room for some spice and fruitiness. Lots of vanilla and fudge.
Palate
Short, smooth and floral with hints of ginger and hay and subtle green notes with a touch of citrus.
Finish
Light and soft with a very light texture, lively albeit its shortness.
Comment
Enjoyable, even though it had a short finish, I found the dram well balanced and quaffable.
