Another top class malt from this Top Class Speyside distillery just outside Elgin. Rich gold, with almost no beading. Immediately you are standing in a maturation warehouse, with an added nose of Russian Fudge, soft toffee, marzipan, prunes, apple Tarte-Tatin. This soon becomes coconut, sugared almonds and Bakewell Tart. Overall, soft and sweet with violets and Turkish Delight. With water, a hint of rosewater also comes through. On the palate, a light oiliness, sweet, then drying with caramelized yellow fruits on top of a tart and lingering persimmon. The perfect tea-time dram.
