Nose: Honey, smoke, cereals, sherry.
Palate: Hay, citrus, walnut, fruity.
Finish: Smoky and spicy, sweet.
I was unsure about tasting a vatted malt as single Speysides have always been my preference. What a surprise!! This Whisky demonstrates a gentle,fruity,smoothness of taste and character with a long and gentle finish,surpassed only by the 17 year old edition.An extremely drinkable Malt,which is replenished on every trip I make to Scotland.
