Such an underrated distillery that produces a unique and sophisticated malt. In my opinion this Signatory bottling lacks some of the complexity and peaty tones of the Flaura and Fauna editions, but has more assertive spice and floral qualities. Fantastic dram to have after a bracing hike. Nose: Elegant, floral and proud. Displays notes of blossom and almost sapling freshness. Tiniest hint of honeyed spice. Palate: Strong and muscular, again with a fresh and spring-like cleanliness. Develops tones of apple, barbecued banana, delicate blossom (honeysuckle?), cinnamon and a touch of vanilla sweetness. Finish: Medium-length, nicely balanced with spiciness coming to the fore, but still very clean and fresh. Would not recommend adding water - mutes those delicate and very enjoyable floral tones.
