Description

NOSE : Camphor, hints of peat and loads of vanilla.

PALATE : A full on tongue riot as melons and custard creams go at it big time.

FINISH : The lurking peat finally makes itself felt.

COMMENT : A very enjoyable, no nonsense malt.

“A very tasty dram, with a clear malt-intense in the Speyside style. The sheer intensity of the malt is sublime.” Jim Murray
