Nose: Rich, creamy malt notes on the nose, with a touch of cooked fruit and blossom. Very thick and inviting. A little apricot and perhaps even the faintest hint of wood smoke.
Palate: Barley malt to the core, with notes of cocoa butter and manuka honey. Baked pears with allspice, hints of sweetened latte and toasted oak develop. Some toffee too.
Finish: Oaky, toasted finish. Salt caramel and butter, sweet, milky coffee.
Overall: A beautifully malty, rich whisky with all the hallmarks of one of Speyside's best-loved distilleries...
