Nose
Dried fruits, little musty, tinned prune, damp earth, hint of meat stock. The lurking sweetness is brought out by water.
Palate
Quite concentrated, orange Spangles, nougat. A slight fizzy quality which leads into (pink) marshmallow. Shows finesse and good balance.
Finish
Long, clean hint of smoke.
Comment
Good weight of spirit, but needs more from the cask to make it great.

Arthur Motley

75
Nose
Tinned pears, parma ham, aniseed, lemon balm, grass and a little earthiness. Lime juice.
Palate
Lemon sorbet, biscuits and a sweet meatiness.
Finish
A light toffeeness.
Comment
Speyside style.
