Let's be honest, we judge Whisky on quality, flavour, nose, taste, finish....and price. Whilst price is not as important sometimes I find a bottle that belies its price. This one cost only £29 and punches well above its weight.

The colour gives away the fact that that is has been finished in Pedro Ximinez casks. The nose is sweet fruity, peat, and smoke. The palate is oily, peat, malt, sweet sherry, coffee and ripe dark fruits.

The finish is smokey, peat, sweet and medium long.

This is a lovely sherried malt from a great Speyside distillery. It isn't complex but what it does it does well.
