NOSE: gorgeous moist marzipan with acacia honey and barley juice;

TASTE: the kind of delivery that makes you wonder why a distillery is not more widely appreciated: classic Speyside flightiness but with a remarkable degree of intensity to the slightly grisy barley; the spices make an announcement at the midpoint ...;

FINISH: and decide they are there to stay. Brilliant layering to the vanilla-led tannin, weaving pretty patterns with the concentrated Malteser candy; the oils cling on gamely ensuing fabulously long finish;

BALANCE: class in a glass.
