Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/09/2012


Clear dark golden with burnished gold highlights.


Cinnamon, red apple, Muscovado sugar and jasmine blossom.


Medium bodied and honeyed in style, this easy vanillered malt bursts with apple fruit and jasmine freshness but is made complex thanks notes of candied orange peel, cinnamon and clove spice and balancing dusty cigarette ash and cedarwood dryness.


Woody oxidised pineapple notes linger on the pleasant finish.
