Many have also been recognizably smoky, which is rare for a Speyside
whisky. This one, aged in a first fill bourbon barrel, is true to its
roots. It is a clean whisky, with a creamy, soothing maltiness
throughout. The palate is entertained by notes of vanilla and honey,
with anise, white pepper and a teasing smokiness. The thick maltiness
and soft smokiness linger long on the finish. A very underrated whisky.
