Nose
Heather and malt, cooked plums; notably sophisticated. Makes you want to keep nosing it.
Palate
Lovely big, malty dram, buttery and sweet, background ginger, with later claret notes creeping in.
Finish
Long, drying, very stylish.
Comment
Large, yet complex. A lovely example of this outstanding Speyside whisky which still has far too low a profile.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich, sweet and rounded. Cake mix, malted loaf. In time burnt notes, treacle scone then Worcestershire sauce. Light peat, pecan.
Palate
Dried fruits. Rich fruit cake. Plum. Soft and deep to start then like the nose becomes grippy, charred and tannic.
Finish
Dry. Fruit cake again.
Comment
Good, but lacks a little sweetness.
