Nose: 23/25 Not shy about its age, being happy to wear some oak creases with pride. But there is more glamorous granny than faded beauty as some sexy citrus tantalize…
Taste: 23/25 A softer, juicier delivery than you have a right to expect; the oaks arrives late and with good manners.
Finish: 20.5/25 Back to the fruit you pick up on the nose as light barley mingles with vanilla; a little furry late on.
Balance: 22/25 A character malt, performing all kinds of stunning Speyside tricks, but with the odd one falling flat on its face. Great fun.
