    This is a very potent dram for its 43%, and that gives it great balance with the overall classic Speyside profile making for a nice wake-up call harking back to the days before the current trend of 3-5 year old bottlings from a different breed of cask, etc.

    • Nose
      Masses of stewing dried fruits, almost mincepie-elike, with lashings of Acacia honey and fresh baked Christmas cake
    • Taste
      The finish is surprisingly clean with a wealth of red berry fruits and melted
      dark chocolate.
