A more delicate, slightly sweeter whisky than our 12 year old, it captures the essence of Speyside in a bottle. Matured in a mixture of three distinct cask types: refill, ex-sherry and bourbon, it is an elegant, easy drinking whisky with notes of fresh pear, honey and vanilla.
“First rate: accessible and easy to drink. It will certainly appeal to consumers who enjoy lighter styles of Speyside, but it has plenty of character”.Charlie MacLean, Whisky Expert

in a sentence… A more delicate, sweeter take on the classic Speyside style. Matured in a mixture of three distinct cask types: Refill, Sherry and Bourbon, the result is an elegant, easy drinking and mixable dram with notes of fresh pear, honey and vanilla on a faint base of wood ash.
Soft orchard fruit develops into boiled apple candies. White pepper begins to crackle through honey and buttered toast, with hints of vanilla in the background
Delicate and smooth with a slightly oily palate that carries notes of fresh orchard fruit, sweet spice, toffee and fresh pear. A bright, grassy undertone throughout.
