A bit disappointing.
Aged 10 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Cereal with some nutty/toffee notes and baked fruits. Water kills it.
Palate: Light-to middle-weight, and though it has quite a 'thick' feel it lacks any complexity. Immature?
Comment: A bit disappointing.
Nose: Intense and sharp. Slightly spirity. Leafy. Fern. Cherry trifle. White pepper.
Palate: Enveloping and warm. Velvety. Cream fudge. A lot of spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper.
Finish: Long-lasting. Warm. Gently vanishing with almonds and nuts.
Comment: Quite a muscular Speysider. The perfect dram to buck you up after a woodland walk mushroom-picking on a cold November day.
