Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan:
Colour: Luminous golden raindrops.
Body: A superb concentration of flavour and texture. This buxom beauty carries the weight with the ease, balance and presence of a Milan model. One of the classiest around.
Nose: Opens with orange marmalade with a twist of cedar, buttery lanolin and crispy wafer biscuits. Then it bends a little towards warm freshly cut barley, with other Speyside-in-summer notes appearing before returning to the honey glazed fruits characteristic of this region. Its multi dimensional range of aromas burst like a spectacular rainbow on the senses. Total serenity.
Palate: This is the textbook example of how well distilled malt whisky, that´s been matured in quality oak for over 35 years should taste. It´s just wave upon wave of full bodied beautifully balanced, absolutely delicious, honest to goodness flavours that simply blow you away. Don´t collect, ´just enjoy´!! Please!
Finish: Generous and expansive with style and honesty. The best is saved to last. It leaves with the oak and barley as its signature note.
