Tasting Notes

Nose

Hugely complex: perfumed with dried apricot, pear, orange and cinnamon. There's honey, hazelnut, orange blossom water, spices and light smoke.

Palate

Intensely concentrated mid-palate with a mass of honeyed red and black fruits, spice, apple. Superb balance and harmony between all the elements.

Finish

Sweet toffee. Smoke.

Comment

Proof, if it were needed, that this is a first-growth distillery.
