A legendary Speyside with the Titanic strength of barley malted by burning peat. A whisky of sublime sophistication and balance.
Nose: Rich, round and soft with the spicy aroma of winter fruits and mulled wine. A complex synthesis of Madagascan vanilla pods, liquorice and preserved Maraschino cherries against a backdrop of lightly charred oak and just a whiff of oily peat.
Palate: Silky smooth up front. Powerful, rich, and even more savoury than the nose suggested with the excitement of zesty orange peel adding to the spice. A splash of water brings out more earthy characteristics: Grassy, Flinty, Slatey flavours add to the complexity.
Finish: Exceptionally long and rich. Spicy Orange with a hint of sherry in charred oak.
