Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Complex, rich mix of flowers, fruit (dried and caramelised), plum, baked apple, currant, honey, roast chestnut, meat and toffee. Phew.
Palate: A soft start, then dark fruits mixed with light honey and cooked peach. A rich, elegant, silky texture that fills the mouth. Highly complex.
Finish: Soft with a gentle hint of smoke.
Comment: Balances richness and fragrance superbly.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Honeyed. Floral. Herbal. Full of subtleties.
Palate: Lightly syrupy. Sweet. Delivers what the bouquet promised.
Finish: Starts gently dry, but quickly soars to spicy heights.
Comment: Very accessible, and not given to grandiosity, but it's one of the Speyside greats. Good with some desserts. Try it with cassata.
