Is it worth the extra charge to the (now rare) standard 10yo? Ultimately, everyone has to know that for themselves. The good batches of the 10 year old from ~ 2017 were in a class of their own, I think. But here and now you would have to dig much deeper into your pocket than for this drinkable one.
Spicy elderflower, fairly tightly interwoven heavy honey aromas.
There is the Nevis elderflower syrup note that delights the palate with an intense and slightly oily taste - just not that much more, a bit like a grape sugar, intense and quickly fading again, unless you have more in your mouth. In any case, the alcohol is pleasantly well integrated.
The delicious mouthfeel is not followed very quickly, not even after chewing it. With larger sips, the spice stays present for longer, with old lemon and shortbread.
