Nose
Quite barley sweet with a lovely combination of youth and maturity. Exceedingly estery with banana, apricot, pineapple and subtle American oak. Hints of honey and classic Speyside grassiness.
Palate
Shows less tropical character and more of the straw-like white fruit. Good dollop of mature honey and oak with hints of grass and minerals.
Finish
Long and oily with a spicy finish and earthy / herbal after-taste.
Comment
This subscribes to the simple fact of good spirit plus good wood equals a good blend!

Nose
Fresh white flowers, citrus zest and some dusty overtones. You'd struggle to point this out as malty. Much more like a grain-based product.
Palate
Vanilla, lemon grass, some pineapple juice. There is an extreme lightness to this. A very light product that hasn't taken enough from the cask.
Finish
Lemon zest and slight hints of other citrus fruits.
Comment
Approach this with your grain-flavour hat and you'll have a great experience.
