    There's stuff that I like, but the alcohol is very present at only eight years of age.
    • Nose
      Fairly alcoholic, but luckily it has more to offer. Vanilla and oak with fresh lemon squeeze and pink grapefruit as well, giving it a nice freshness. Only the slightest trace of peat.
    • Taste
      As the nose already suggested, this is pretty sharp. Too much black pepper. Water takes care of that somewhat. Toffee and vanilla again, with a thin layer of nectarine.
    • Finish
      Feisty, warming. Vanilla. Medium in length.

    This distillery exclusive bottling is a fresh, vibrant, attractive
    and melow single malt. A lovely combination of a spectrum of fruity
    sweetness and an intense but pleasant spiciness. Surprisingly easy to
    drink neat, but turns into a spicy monster when water is added.

    I thank Neil Martin from Rossmor Guest House in Grantown-on-Spey for the sample!

    • Nose
      Clean and fresh on the nose. An intriguing combination of fruity and
      savoury with lovely notes of apricots, subtle lemon balm and delicate
      vanilla. Slightly alcoholic with gentle fragrant peat smoke in the back.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity start on the palate with apricots, peaches and citric
      flavours, accompanied by lingering notes of custard and toffee. Then the
      alcohol sensation gently bites the tongue supported by a massive load
      of warming spices - cinnamon, oak, black pepper and tender anise.
      Develops on a prickling oaky flavour. Quite vibrant!
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm, and creamy sweet. Mouthcoating with a light
      maltiness and a lively lemon touch. Slightly drying on the tail.

      WITH WATER: There's more fruit coming through with a splash of water.
      While vanilla and toffee are still present, the gentle peat smoke's
      almost vanished. Water enhances the spiciness on the palate with an
      increasing amount of hot chilli. Sharp and warm. The fruitiness is
      almost tamed. The finish is long, still hot, creamy and very dry.
