Inoffensive but not hugely exciting.
Year of Bottling
Nose: Slightly hard and biscuity. Some bran flakes, a little smoke. Water makes it more fragrant. Not hugely complex.
Palate: Dry start. Shuts up shop quickly on the palate. Malt, some spice but it's all straight down the middle.
Finish: Some cream and spices again.
Comment: Inoffensive but not hugely exciting.
Nose: Beeswax, polished floor. Greengage. A touch of lemon balm.
Palate: Full and richly flavoured. Discloses more cereal than on the nose.
Finish: Hot and spicy (ginger).
Comment: Wood has the word in the finish. An assertive Speysider to enjoy after dinner.
