'Highland toffee, brambles and ginger marmalade'
At full strength, the aroma is sweet, fruity and floral, exceptionally well-rounded and balanced in flavour, characteristic of this classic Speyside single malt. The first impression is of Highland toffee and candy floss with honeycomb and sweet malt notes. Herbal top notes are discovered with heather and brambles.
With water, honeycomb changes to beeswax and rich fruity notes emerge with blackcurrants, dried apricots and figs. In the background are enticing spices with cloves and ginger marmalade.
As befits a classic Speyside malt, the taste is smooth, warming and rounded with a good firm body. Lots of sweet, soft malty flavours evolve in the centre of the palate, surrounded by toffee and mouth watering fruits (blackcurrants and dried apricots). Boiling sweets reach the roof of the mouth before the emergence of liquorice, tea and nut oil.
Toffee, blackcurrants and a hint of liquorice remains into the finish which is medium in length.

Note: Unfortunately we can only deliver whisky within Europe (excluding Denmark). But if you live elsewhere you can email Iain to see what other arrangements can be made. Due to customs regulations, we're afraid we are unable to despatch whisky to the US or Canada — but that gives you an even better excuse to come and visit us in person!
