Nose
Dense, walnutty sherry with hints of wood smoke, Armagnac-esque prunes and dried fruit along with hints of freshening citrus, minerals and late mocha and earth notes.
Palate
Intense oxidised fruit and treacle. Quite nutty with walnuts, spice and dark coffee. Becomes rather tannic on the middle which gives it a very raw cask feel.
Finish
Reasonable length with lingering dry, slightly bitter tannins and a smoky after-taste
Comment
Bitter at the end, but this certainly has its merits.

Nose
All the right notes in all the right places, this gives heather, vanilla, old book shops and some fresh varnish notes. The heather develops into lavender over time.
Palate
Smooth and oily, this is a drinker's dram which delivers lovely notes of sunflower seeds, royal jelly, sweet orange peel and rich oak. Deserves a big pour.
Finish
Medium and slightly dry, it isn't too old and has good lingering spices.
Comment
Another well-made Speyside dram which deserves some attention.
