"The nose is classic old-school Speyside – ripe mango, apples, pears, pineapple and flowers with custard Danish and syrup sponge sweetness – but fresh too – paint, Imperial Leather soap and crystallized ginger. The palate combines intense flavours of juicy pear and sherbet straws; then canvas, leather and oak tingle the after-taste. With water, the nose finds someone in a leather Chesterfield, smoking a cigar in a luxurious hotel suite, vases of flowers all around. The reduced palate has just enough sweetness to balance the mouth-drying leather and wood. A contemplative dram that deserves time and may go well with a cigar. "
