Nose
Initially, stewed fruit/marmalade and roasted nuts, then the smoke begins to build. This melange of fruit, nut and peat fires makes it multi-faceted.
Palate
Immediate overwhelming smokiness which hangs there as the spirit slowly unfolds. Pecan, hazelnut. Sweet spices. Great length.
Finish
Ash and pepper. Tingling.
Comment
Complex with excellent balance. A typical for a Speyside, but it's one hell of a dram!

Nose
Very estery, pear drops and pineapple cubes. With water some complex and subtle phenols, as it settles autumn woodsmoke and dry ash. With plenty of time to settle in the glass a subtle tone of roasted peanuts or peanut butter.
Palate
Woodsmoke, and parma ham, with a vanilla sweetness. Some salty nuts too.
Finish
Pink dettol, estery.
Comment
Complex and balanced. Excellent.
