My Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Eating a honeyed toast at a fireplace, raisins, orange zest, vanilla, marzipan, hints of cinnamon and cloves.
Palate: Sweet peat, a bit of liquorice, vanilla, marzipan, cinnamon, cloves, just hints of fruit.
Finish: Very long, smoky and slightly sweet.
Overall: After a great nose, the palate of this peated Speyside malt trails a bit behind as the fruit has lost some of its influence. Still a very nice dram, though.
Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
