Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Similar to opening a box of chocolates, that hit of milk, mixed with dark, vanilla sweetness, cream fondant and butterscotch. Oak here too, with the tartness of green apple skins.
Palate: Sweetness all the way, some dark fruits, blackberries mainly, lurk. There’s a zesty citrus hit before the oak takes over.
Finish: Pretty long, with lots of that sweetness and spices interplaying. A little hit of oak char at the end.
Comment: A no nonsense malt. Wonderful balance, just missing a little more punch to it.
8.6
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Sweet and floral with notes of red apples, jasmine, pear drops and crushed vanilla pods. Wisps of white pepper, meringue, salted caramel and freshly baked pancakes.
Palate: Heather honey, jasmine and vanilla soap, chamomile tea with flamed orange peel creating a flash of bitterness. Mouth-watering notes of white grapes and watermelon towards the finish.
Finish: Fresh and fragrant, with a dry finish on the palate.
Comment: A classic Speysider – a bundle of florals and fruits.
