Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, grassy. Elegant. Peaches poached in honey. Then fudge andliquorice toffee. An earthy note too. Sun warmed pine needles.
Palate: Round at first then an explosion of spices gives a very dry feel, balancedwith creamy marshmallow and caramelised almonds.
Finish: Sweet, lingering, with a gentle fizzy feel on the tongue.
Comment: A real cracker. Perfect balance. Rich, enticing. Alcohol is beautifully mastered.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Pear drops, roast apples, dried mango and a runny honey sweetness. Cereal notes and leaf mulch lurk in the background.
Palate: All fruit and nut chocolate, flat white coffee and hard travel sweets at first. Then the oak dries a little with Chantilly cream.
Finish: Warm and sweet, with a hint of walnut.
Comment: Full of Speyside charm and swagger, balance and poise.
