Review and Tasting


Sampled on 04/07/2020

Appearance:

Clear, mid-golden amber.

Aroma:

Malty creamy cereal with cut grass, light honey, vanilla and ripe pineapple.

Taste:

More fruity on the palate than the nose might suggest with pineapple, sweet peach and pear skin.

Aftertaste:

Vanilla softens toasty lightly spicy oak with cleansing citrus and lingering hazelnut.

Overall:

This approachable and fruity Speyside malt is light-bodied in style but packs a wide variety of balanced flavours: orchard fruit, tropical fruit, vanilla, citrus and hazelnut.
