Tasting Notes

NATURAL COLOUR:
Pale gold.

NOSE:
Heavy vanilla notes and sweet malted barley, with a citrus edge.

PALATE:
On the palate the citrus notes really come through while balanced by complex spices and malty notes.

FINISH:
The Speyside character really comes before lingering spice, sweetness dries with a hint of Islay smoke coming through in the end, though less pronounced than in earlier batches.

ABV:
46% Non-Chill Filtered

RELEASED:
UK April 2016 – 5th Release
