Looks like they just issued this one, or relaunched it, or whatever… Should be good anyway. Colour: white wine. Nose: typical natural un-sherried middle-aged Speysider of good provenance, with the usual waxy fruits doing their jobs to perfection. We’re talking mirabelles, quinces, apples, pears, and various small berries including elder. Yes, the Monty Pythons’, please excuse my Frenchness. Also sunflower oil and peelings. With water: gets more floral. Dandelions, buttercups, and a little light honey. Mouth (neat): wonderful freshness, with flying fruits! Mostly plums of all kinds, mirabelles, damsons, greengages and all their buddies. Always this waxy/oily background as well, this baby has got some depth. With water: it adores water, it seems. Wonderful teas and grasses, more peelings, mango skin, pink grapefruits. Finish: indeed, apple peel and pink grapefruits. Tangerines. Comments: malt whisky as nature intended. Well, not too sure about that one.
