    Allandale's notes below are a rip-off from Cadenhead's own.

    In full they read:

    After a long wait we can finally get our hands on a true Speyside legend

    NOSE: Sweet, toffee, honeycomb and crystalised ginger with green apple skins.

    PALATE: Lemon icing, muscavado sugar, cherries, raspberries and vanilla pods.

    FINISH: Dry spices with lemon meringue pie, faint orange zest and mango.

    Its a difficult one to review with the panel simply because everyone liked it a little too much.

    Let’s give it a try! (LTP) Superb sweet fruity rich nose of orchard fruits and honey, the palate is creamy smooth with lemon drizzle some black currant sweets and spices.

    It’s an incredible dram with too many good things to say about it.

    £75 [Dec '18]
