This one too wasn’t tasted on these very lousy pages since… 2010 (WF 85 again). Oh I’ll have to do 105 vs. A’bunadh again one of these days… Colour: pale amber. Nose: epitomically Speyside indeed. You cannot be against these notes of Mars bars, millionaire shortbread, malted coffee (blend), and pipe tobacco. No you cannot. With water: whiffs of wet earth, always a win in any malt whisky. Mouth (neat): creamy and assertive, not that simple, with marmalade, malt, genuine hazelnut paste (won’t mention that awful brand again, ever) and Cointreau-filled chocolate. A sin. With water: fruits! Oranges and those lovely little fruits they/you have in China, longans. Or dried arbutus berries. Finish: perfect, balanced, kind of smooth, malty and chocolaty. Comments: up one point within seven or eight years. Seriously, this is excellent, classic malt whisky.
