COLOUR : Warm and inviting honey gold.
NOSE : Rich and enticing. Bold Highland nuances of crushed pear and toffee apple with intriguing spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla and gooseberries draw you in. Then a veil of tangy peat smoke, freshly baked bread and hazelnuts suddenly emerge, but is quickly tempered by orange rind, ginger and coriander.
TASTE : Bold and positive. Mysterious, complex and heart warming with its many attractive flavours of dark bitter chocolate, rich roasted coffee beans, citrus fruits and truffles. Each flavour combines in perfect harmony, then a charming ‘spritzig’ or prickle on the tongue of peat smoke, nutmeg and fresh mint arouse the senses. Rather intriguing but delightfully different. By holding this delectable malt long in the mouth you will capture the last remaining whispers of sherry trifle,marizpan and ripe pineapple. Single malt at its purest.
