Takes you on the Speyside Way for a pleasant digestive walk.
8 Years Old
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Aromatic. Grassy. Lemon peel. Tarragon. Uncooked bread. Touch of leather.
Palate: Minty, refreshing. Starts with cereals then fruit comes through, stewed plums marinated with vanilla pods.
Finish: Vanishes quickly but smoothly with light spices.
Comment: Takes you on the Speyside Way for a pleasant digestive walk.
Nose: Young nose: lemon, peanuts. A dusty, grain loft aroma. Water doesn't dampen down the floury notes. Not integrated.
Palate: Light crisp and green, the lemons again – and the floury maltiness. Pretty one-dimensional.
Comment: Lacks integration and complexity.
