An active distillery from Speyside.
Polished copper or beech with excellent beading.
Hints of truffle oil soon settle down to fruit-cake. With time, sweetness emerges as dark treacle toffee – then grows richer, finally giving way to newly burnt toast and embers from a wood fire.
Light and gently oily.
Big, smooth-textured and mouth-filling, with a sweet and spicy nature. The first sip cools, then the taste catches fire! Briefly salty, savoury, then toffee sweetness leads to baked pastry.
Lengthy, chewy and warming, with a menthol effect, a hint of flint, then burnt currants on Christmas cake or dried orange peel. There are notes of almond in the beautifully aromatic aftertaste and there’s a very late, charred astringency with a faded trace of smoke.
