    Pleasant, powerful blend from Highlands.
    • Nose
      Honey, caramel, fruits, marzipan, orange peel.
    • Taste
      In addition to sweet fruits, the spicy oak comes in nicely. Vanilla, honey, candied orange peel, milk chocolate. Touch of smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, spicy.

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    *Bronze Medal at Malt Maniacs Awards 2014An exciting new entry in our catalogue! When we sampled these casks we had no expectations, but their quality surprised us so we decided to buy some stocks. Soft, chewy, luscious, with a rich background of candied oranges, apricots, beeswax, and just the right amount of nuttiness, it could easily be mistaken for a classic Speysider… which is far from the truth. The sherry influence is obvious but not explicitly winey or on the tannic side. Rather, it has that wonderfully autumnal potpourri of chestnuts, slightly peppery character, cinnamon biscuits and buttery cake that is typical of the good balance between first and second fill casks. Medium bodied, fragrant, perfectly suited as an after dinner malt but easy and soft enough for any occasion.

    • Nose
      Well in the beginning very sweet, honey, marzipan orange peel, nice airy flower meadow
    • Taste
      fruity and again these candied fruits, light, soft and gentle with a very subtle hint of smoke, or is it the wood. Great taste not so sticky sweet. Something dry. I like tasting better than nosing
    • Finish
      , Schwupp weg iser. A little short.

  5. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice "fake-Glenmorangie"
    • Nose
      Many fruits (banana, papaya, grapes), butter, honey, arugula, a little alcohol.

      With water: a little marzipan.
    • Taste
      Sweet on fruits, vanilla, honey, milk chocolate, some spices.

      With water: more fruity.
    • Finish
      Medium and sweet, peppery.
