Nose
Intense, grassy. Elegant. Peaches poached in honey. Then fudge and liquorice toffee. An earthy note too. Sun warmed pine needles.
Palate
Round at first then an explosion of spices gives a very dry feel, balanced with creamy marshmallow and caramelised almonds.
Finish
Sweet, lingering, with a gentle fizzy feel on the tongue.
Comment
A real cracker. Perfect balance. Rich, enticing. Alcohol is beautifully mastered.

Nose
Pear drops, roast apples, dried mango and a runny honey sweetness. Cereal notes and leaf mulch lurk in the background.
Palate
All fruit and nut chocolate, flat white coffee and hard travel sweets at first. Then the oak dries a little with Chantilly cream.
Finish
Warm and sweet, with a hint of walnut.
Comment
Full of Speyside charm and swagger, balance and poise.
