    • Nose
      8,7 Słodka z nutami miodu, ananasa, gruszki, wanilii, cynamonu oraz gałki muszkatołowej z odrobiną kakao.
    • Taste
      8,7 Lekko ostra, słodka z nutą karmelu, mandarynki, brzoskwini, miodu, marcepanu i mięty ze szczyptą ziół oraz białego pieprzu.
    • Finish
      8,6 Wystarczająco długi, rozgrzewający, lekko gorzki z nutami orzecha, jabłka, jęczmienia, goździka, ziela angielskiego i liścia laurowego.

    I think the switch from bright, fruity notes on the nose to sweet latte and coffee sweets on the palate was really nice. Overall youngish but quite enjoyable.

    • Nose
      Juicy barley, with a few gristy and mineral notes and plenty of apples and pears. Sweet cereals. Light heather honey. Yellow raisins. Hints of vanilla cream. A pretty standard, fresh and modern nose for a young and bourbon matured Speysider.
    • Taste
      Really sweet, lots of marzipan and cooked fruits at first. Melon and honey. Quickly joined by café latte notes and brown candy sugar. A little toffee. Hints of coffee sweets. Still some mineral / waxy notes. Fades on citrus zest and herbs, with a peppery edge.
    • Finish
      Quite long, zesty, with a slight herbal bitterness and liquorice.
