Matured in a single hogshead for 12 years, this is a richly-fruity whisky in which zesty citrus fruits and jammy orchard-fruit notes marry with fresh bread, airy menthol and earthy cocoa. A rounded and multi-dimensional Speysider.Tasting Notes (1)
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
A fruit bowl to start: pears and raspberries with some zingy redcurrants and zest lemons. Sweet butter and sugar sandwiches on white-bread are balanced by polished oak and woody spice, with barley sugar and lemon drops hiding at the back.
Thick and sweet, with the fruit from the nose alternately jammy and poached, with liquorice and damp oak sneaking in behind. Blackcurrant jam and mint cream notes develop, along with sweet, creamy custard and grated 100% cocoa dark chocolate.
Custard and jam lead to dark oak, gentle char and liquorice pastilles.
A big, fruity whisky which balances fresh and darker flavours against sweetness and oaky spice.

Considering the ABV it isn’t that aggressive. It’s flavourful with a mixture of sweet and spicy. Not for someone who’s knew to whisky. Not because it’s a monster like Laphroig or even worse Port Charlotte, but to find the flavours is a bit of a task. Great whisky and would easily buy again.
Classic bourbon-cask goodness. Far too many current offerings taste just like the bourbon from the barrels they're aged in. Not this one. Boozy fruit salad on the nose, tart granny smith apples and vanilla frosting on the palate, and some sawdust to finish, but the wonderfully oily spirit still shines through. Highly recommended.
