Nose: grassy with hints of aniseed. Sweeter notes lurking beneath; candied ginger?

Taste: rich, oily body. Sweet with licorice and tropical fruits. Then a massive surge of oak. Wonderful, lip-smacking stuff.

Finish: a touch of sourness, but not enough to make things unpleasant. Long and oaky with echoes of malty sweetness.

Balance: I really love this whisky. It is a true full-bodied Speyside with enough flavour to make you reconsider your stance on the malts of this region. Needs a splash of water to really reveal itself. It truly is a no-frills kind of whisky: pale in colour, pure in flavour, with no peat or cask finishes to mask its malty character. A real malt-lover's dram.
