Customer Reviews:(1 review)
The peaty smoke really matters with a whisky this light and fruitful, and what there is shines through. The oak and greenery provide the added notes of interest. The lack of CF and its youthful bounce is long over due in a region too often over-shadowed by dinosaurs. A great taster of what the new wave in Speyside has to offer.
