A Top Class malt which is rarely seen in proprietary bottlings, it has been drawn from a 1st fill ex-Bourbon hogshead, which has given it an unusually dark golden hue, even amber. The first nose is orangey, with earthy and spicy notes behind (we thought of horseradish), then a trace of light sponge and macaroons. A drop of water develops the citric note and increases its fragrance – Muscat grapes, wall-flowers, natural floor wax. A smooth, soft texture and a rounded taste, lightly sweet and lightly drying in the medium-length finish, leaving a lingering taste of desiccated coconut.
