    Superb profile. Balanced with the tip of exoticism that it takes.
    91/92
    • Nose
      Very nice nose. A bit of exoticism. Apricot, peach, camphorated plum. Pineapple, strawberry. A little toast.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is quite fresh and powerful.
      Yellow fruits, exotic. Peach, apricot, pineapple, passion, mango. A little milk chocolate. Spices, lavender.
    • Finish
      Long finish on milk chocolate and fruit wrapped in camphor.

    Copied from www.whiskyfun.com

    Colour: gold. Nose: richer and rounder than
    both Tomintouls, and rather more complex as well. More leathery notes,
    then more honey and dried fruits such as figs and bananas. Also a
    farminess arising, hay, grass smoke (I mean, garden bonfire, eh) and
    then some fresh and very wonderful notes of dill. Gravlax? ;-). Mouth:
    rich and rounded and, above all, much, much less dry/oaky than the old
    Tomintouls. Honey, pine sap, quinces, liquorice, Cointreau, then more
    spices, pepper, strong mint… Finish: the oak comes out more but the
    whole is fairly long, with more orange zests, lemon marmalade and
    liquorice. Comments: excellent, even if it hasn’t quite got the same
    ‘sexiness’ as some Caperdonichs or Benriachs of similar age. Or Glen
    Grant? We’ll see… Perfect body and just the amount of oak that allows it
    to fetch 90 in my wee book. SGP:551 - 90 points.=>http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivenovember11-1.html#091111
