Colour: white wine.
Nose: it’s sharp and a bit narrow, on green apples, green barley, lime, and rhubarb. Very blade-y, apparently, but water may change that. With water: perhaps a little banana skin, and a little chalk?
Mouth (neat): a perfect, simple, well-made, fruity Speysider. A whole fruit salad, with rather more citrus than usual. Green apples and pears as well. With water: pears win it.
Finish: medium, more citrusy again. It keeps hesitating between citrus and green apples and pears, in other words.
Comments: sadly not quite in the style of the glorious, say 1972s, but quality remained pretty high. Very fine fruity (orchardy) distillate
