Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Generous and rich: stewed peach/apricot, honey, heather, moist buttered sultana cake, some sulphur/burnt matches and even some smoke.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied. Ripe, sweet fruits with excellent honeyed concentration which slowly becomes nuttier and a little smoky. Big and powerful with great balance.
Finish: Liquorice and vanilla.
Comment: One of the great ignored classics of Speyside.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Flowery heather-honey, with spicy, creamy notes.
Palate: Very long. Lots of honey. Flowery. Orange blossom. Seville orange. A hint of cloves. Pepper.
Finish: Fragrant. Delicate smokiness.
Comment: For me, the classic example of Speyside heather-honey character. A beautifully rounded, characterful, elegant, whisky.
