Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/08/2011

Appearance

Clear, golden appearance.

Aroma

Peaty, roasted pineapple nose with a light lemon zest twist.

Taste

Silky, unctuous palate – honey, vanilla and pineapple fruit interact with spicy (coriander) layers of smoky peat and cedar wood.

Aftertaste

Incredibly long satisfying silky finish. One of the best drams I have ever had the pleasure to savour.
