NOSE: I could nose this charmer all night long and into the early hours...there is fruity dexerity to this upon which I could lecture for hours on end. We are talking the thinest silvers here; kiwi fruit, psysallis, Chinese pear...exotic yet fresh and rich. The malt has a gristy quality emboldened by the lightest and most demur golden syrup...;

TASTE: You really couldn't ask for a better delivery; so gentle as the malt lands like snowflakes, so complex as the spices meet the fuller red liquorice and crystallised ginger notes...;

FINISH: A little bitterness creeps in, but the extension to the delivery fades as unhurried as a Scottish Highland summer sunset...;

BALANCE: Have to admit: will be drinking a mouthful of this before bed tonight. This is the perfect Speyside experience!
