Tasting Notes

Nose

Gentle and slow to open. Rich tea biscuits, Madeira, nuts, peach juice, apple core, flowers and dried peels. A light oiliness. Complex and balanced.

Palate

Restrained, with sweet honeyed notes. Great width on the palate, lovely soft feel. Water shatters it.

Finish

Long, aromatic.

Comment

A fantastic old Speyside which hits a perfect balance between cask and spirit.
