Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Bright, crisp barley and tropical apricot, pineapple, mango, lime and lemon. Evocative and utterly gorgeous. Just the barest hint of oak allows the mature spirit character to shine.
Palate: Sharp, citric and stony with dusty pollen heavy barley and again subtle oak. The tropical fruit notes battle through the layers of citrus and, although not as enthusiastic as the nose, they’re still delightful.
Finish: Long, fresh and citric with lingering tropical fruit and mineral notes.
Comment: A beautiful, mature Spey. A little more oak would have seen it score even higher.

Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: The malt is evident in this, mixed with copper, lanolin, vanilla and some custard notes as well. Noses like a good mainland Scotch whisky, all heather and honey.
Palate: Very juicy, like a nice fruity white wine. This gives a hint of clove and bitterness to bolster the sweetness of the initial fruits. Layered and juicy.
Finish: Pineapple chunks in syrup. Sweet white tea. Some white pepper powder.
Comment: Another well made, easy to drink, light, malty whisky
