I’ll gloss over the hyperbole on the label, this is despite Diageo’s long seen through hype, a pretty main stream speyside.
Pale amber in colour, the aromas include orange zest, cinnamon and coriander seed, and touch of cheap sherry. On the palate it’s medium bodied with a background of honey sweetness introducing a range of delicate flavours of orange, papaya and strawberries along with a little more of that cheap sherry. Not overpoweringly flavourful or complex but it tastes like it’s doing you good somehow.
The finish seems to make each flavour more distinct as the sweetness fades, but it’s pretty short. Overall this is a simple well presented speyside malt, but with so many others on the market I do wonder how they all sell.
