Colour: Pale gold
Flavour: Young & spritely
This is remarkably mature for its age - easy drinking and
accessible – although it comes from a distillery close to the Spey which
produces a robust, meaty make. A clean, fresh aroma, with pineapple chunks,
strawberry boiled sweets and Bakewell tarts (more almond than pastry); a smooth
texture and more boiled sweets, cooling strawberry jam and berry fruits. With
water it becomes more estery and ‘childish’ – Playdoh, sweet talc, wax crayons,
bonbons dusted with icing sugar, strawberry vanilla ice-cream with caramel
sauce. Soft and smooth in the mouth, and not as sweet as might be expected.
Drinking Tip: For the child in us all!
