Nose
Mature and tropical with lemon zest, orange blossom honey, pear, peach and barley. Hints of gooseberry and citrus. Water emphasises the honey, barley and orange.
Palate
Luscious and honeyed. Wonderfully layered with more creamy oak. Good citric and mineral middle. Water emphasises the juicy orange and honey.
Finish
Long, crisp and mouth-watering citrus with hints of straw and herbs. Water makes the finish exceedingly juicy.
Comment
Now that's how I like my Speys. Beautifully complex and layered.

Nose
There are classic Speyside notes here of heather, sweet oak, liquorice and honey. This nose is delightful and inviting, and does what a Speyside whisky should.
Palate
Again, on the palate this hits the spot; a classic easy-drinking Speyside with the right balance of oak age and spirit character, giving a well-balanced flavour.
Finish
Simple, medium-long and not too sweet.
Comment
A very well-made Speyside single malt which anyone should be happy with.
