In brief… A smooth, beautifully structured and well-paced Speyside malt with a rich texture and a mellow, easy-drinking balance of sweet fruit and spice. A great aperitif! in a sentence… An entrancingly fruity and floral nose, in which fresh citrus and warm notes of baked apple and orchard fruits are backed by malty cereal and toffee, introduces smooth sweetness on the palate and a gently drying, spicy finish. Shy and soft at first, and beautifully smooth: fresh, yet also mellow. Appetisingly sweet: tinned fruit salad, with waxy red apple skins or orange and apple peel, fresh pear and barley sugar bound together with icing sugar or marzipan. Mixed citrus fruit travel sweets in a round tin, perhaps, above a gently malty cereal base with hints of soft creamy toffee and a developing milk chocolate background. Later, pineapple/tropical fruit notes: ripe bananas and clotted cream balanced by homemade lemonade. Much later, more tropical fruit salad and possibly the faintest memory of smoke. Still shy with a dash of water; the light waxiness increases, and the fruitiness (now more apple-like) becomes more fragrant. Bigger flavours and drier than the nose suggests. Smooth-textured, with its initial sweetness cut by crisp orange zest. After this there’s a subtle mineral dryness, then aromatic cedar and fine cocoa slowly occupy the mid-palate. With water, the taste is sweeter and less spicy, yet the texture is still smooth and mouth-filling. Medium in length and warming with peppery spice. Tangy hints of menthol with velvety cocoa tannins and a grassy herbal note. There’s a light saltiness in the drying aftertaste, which has just faint hints of almonds and apples.
