Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Youthful, fresh and delightfully citric. Subtly herbal with hints of fragrant honey and underlying malt and vanilla oak.
Palate: A little weightier with more barley and milky oak. Still pleasantly citric on the middle with fleshy apricot, pineapple, grass and sweet vanilla.
Finish: Long and remaining citric with hints of gooseberry, greengage, lime and subtle oak.
Comment: An utterly charming, classic, light Spey. A perfect dram for a warm summer’s day!
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Bags of luscious vanilla, white flowers, pineapple juice and green apples completing a very inviting nose, which is enhanced with a drizzle of water.
Palate: Smooth and soft on the palate, there are hints of oak, vanilla and some tinned tropical fruits in syrup. It is unctuous and tasty, with some sherbet notes.
Finish: Medium in length, there are some good yellow fruit flavours and a hint of oak spice.
Comment: Light and easy drinking, this is a summery dram which would be perfect over ice.
