Lightish nose all around, but layered with tropical and fruit notes. Some breezy notes of honeysuckle, vanilla, butterscotch, toffee and citrus float through with a bit of wood.
Fruit is muddled together here on the palate and mixed with notes of dark honey, malt, burnt graham cracker pie crust, vanilla and a smoky char. There’s a darkness to the palate that wasn’t as apparent on the nose.
Fruit, wood, vanilla and ash go on… and on… and on… and on…
BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
The darkness of it pulls things in a weird direction; it’s a wobbly balance if you will. Medium body with a soft smooth texture.
From the Speyside Region of Scotland a single malt with all the classic qualities of this region. Robust but also delicate.
The fine balance of flavors combine to make this a malt whisky distinctive in both taste and character.
