Nose
Beautifully mature and tropical with hints of green apple, gooseberry, apricot and barley. Slightly coffeed with some lovely honey and dusty oak.
Palate
Fresher and crisper with the emphasis on the white fruit, barley and mineral notes. Lightly honeyed with a more subtle oak character.
Finish
Fantastically long with lingering crisp green apple and citrus.
Comment
A lovely mature malt which skilfully blends maturity and freshness.

Nose
Honeysuckle and lavender with a touch of chilli oil and coconut. Very much of the classic Speyside style and it develops well with time.
Palate
Medium body with a hint of oiliness, it gives a lovely white chocolate start with Royal Jelly coming in and finally some rich runny honey. Well balanced and well rounded. Works well with water too.
Finish
Sweet buttered popcorn, syrup and upside down cake.
Comment
I'm sure Whinnie the Pooh would love this, all runny honey sweetness.
