Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big, complex mix of saffron, cake mix, cinnamon and a touch of spruce. Sweet lifted and elegant. Mellows into stewed orchard fruit with a firm structure underneath. A subtle smokiness with water. Crackling winter fires.
Palate: Ripeness and softness with lots of peachiness. Some chocolate. A stately progression of Assam tea, dried flower, bitter orange, oak, cedar.
Finish: Long and elegant.
Comment: Superb balance and complexity.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Deep, rich, generous. A superb interlacing of resinous notes with dried fruit and honey. Opens on richer aromas of candied chestnut, citrus peel and nutmeg.
Palate: Crisp, dry with a luscious wild silk feel. Elegant oak with spices and dried fruit.
Finish: Everlasting, dry with a nutty touch.
Comment: That single malt has aged without showing a wrinkle. Superb. A classic Speysider.
