- Black Pepper
- Anise (star)
by Billy Abbott
- Nose: Apples and pineapples stirred through brown-sugar-rich porridge. Sharp fruit notes sit at the centre, with Granny Smith apples tempered by candied lemon and sweet-but-crunchy pears.
- Palate: Rich, with a thick texture on the tongue. Spiced sponge cake with sharp apple jam in the middle. Crunchy barley sugar sits alongside sherbet lemons and fresh lemon juice. Hints of meatiness develop. with malt and toffee. Black pepper slowly builds.
- Finish: A punch of nuts – peanuts and almonds, lightly salted – leads to hazelnut brittle, sharp apples and a hint of anise.
- Comment: A fruity dram with just enough of Dailuaine's weighty character to give it some power.
