BLENDED SPEYSIDE MALT
NATURAL COLOUR. 43%.VOL.
23 in stock
Quintessential Speyside. Elegant, complex and very well balanced.
Honey, citrus, malt and floral – in that order.
Sophisticated small batch blend.
COLOUR: Bright old gold
NOSE: Warm honey and spices – nutmeg and powdered ginger – link with ripe pear, candied citrus fruits and Seville orange marmalade. Lightly toasted malt and oat notes develop into sugared almonds and ginger snaps. The wonderfully sweet fruit becomes more tropical and floral notes appear, before the sweetness returns as aromatic white chocolate.
TASTE: Mouth-wateringly rich citrus in balance with warm acacia honey. Gets the juices flowing. The citrus, honey and floral notes are constantly swirling around each other. Lovely sweet acidity, with a nuttiness – almost like baklava. Smooth and coating with a notably long finish.
IMPRESSION: Really elegant pure Speyside malt blend, full of interest and reasons to return. Complexity without heaviness. Refreshing and genuinely very moreish.
