Nose: Rich, malty nose with hints of toffee apples, brandy snaps and a hint of treacle. Rich notes of winter spice, pepper and cooked fruit.
Palate: Pear juice, hints of sweet Normandy cider and allspice. Thick, biscuity malt, a little toasted barley and vanilla ice cream.
Finish: Dried apricot and creamy caramel. A touch of mixed peels and spice.
Overall: Full of malt and fruity flavour, typical of one of Speyside's best-loved distilleries.
