Deep faery gold, with good beading, this promises to be another great whisky from this Top Class distillery. Tasted shortly after Easter, Simnel cake (dried fruits and dry marzipan) immediately springs to mind; then really vivid notes of green apple peel becoming bruised apples. With water the aroma is more of apple pie and well-baked pie crust. A good body, with a pleasant mouth-filling texture, as you would expect from the beading; sweet, with a trace of salt, and the apples are now baked (in their skins). Drying in the medium-length finish, with dessicated coconut in the aftertaste, an excellent example of well-aged Speyside malt.
