Nose: Creamy, sweet cereal notes, like cinnamon and Demerara sugar in porridge, maybe sprinkled with a handful of soft sultanas. Very gristy indeed.
Palate: Toffee apple and prunes, pleasing with rich malt. Notes of spices develop toward the late palate, which has hints of apple strudel and orange zest.
Finish: Very good length with a beautifully rich, fruity sweetness.
Overall: A rich, robust and classically styled Highland single malt.
