Expert Reviews
Insights from some of the best in the business

"Tropical fruits and malt on the comparatively delicate nose. Medium-bodied with fresh fruits and vanilla toffee on the palate, becoming steadily nuttier and drier in a gently oaky, mildly smoky finish."

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.137

"Delicate and floral on the nose, a complex mix of flavours on the palate with orange, citrus fruits, honey, vanilla and cinnamon in the mix."

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.137
