    SMWS notes: 

    "This distillery was built in 1894, four years before its next-door neighbour Benriach. In this orange mahogany offering from a sherry butt, the cask has imprinted its DNA but the lightness of a superb whisky shines through. The neat nose has acres of fruit (pineapple, prunes, raisins), bags of nuts (almonds, Brazils), treacle toffee and some sherry. The main themes continue with water (mixed peel, Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut, Fruit Spangles) along with fudge and roses. The flavour is full-bodied and spicy (blackcurrant, treacle, liquorice, cloves, dark chocolate and orange). Fantastically rich, but wonderfully light and velvety smooth – just amazing."
