Sumptuous aromatic composition, as you’d expect from Speyside: plumply downy, with grass, moss and heather notes. On the palate, a deeper, grander soul than the aroma suggested: dark, forceful, with some chocolate and raisin richness and Latakia-tobacco austerities. Hard to fault, and a great after-dinner dram.

The nose is sweet, almost violet-like, with underlying malt. Big and bold on the palate, this is an upfront yet very drinkable whisky. The finish is medium to long, warming, spicy, with slowly fading notes of sherry and fudge.

Honeycomb and tinned peach and apricot in syrup on the nose, sharp and spicy clean barley on the palate, with some bitter orange notes towards the finish.
