A distinguished example of a Top Class rated malt with a highly sophisticated, classic Speyside taste; a fresh, yet  voluptuous aroma and layers of fruit make this an enticing dram, with well balanced oak providing just enough spice.

Appearance: Pale bronze autumn sunlight. Good beading.

Nose: Mild, rich and sweet initially, with vanilla toffee giving way to leafy, green and herbal notes of fennel and  fresh cut grass. The sweetness remains, moving through candied nuts to polished oak and sweetened cream.  With time, it becomes a fresh-fruity aroma overall, with hints of orchard fruit, dried apple rings and baked apples  joined by poached pears in a fruit salad that also features melon, orange, nectarine and banana with a crunch of  sweet pastry. Water introduces a cooling, floral note, but the fruitiness remains.

Body: Medium.

Palate: Smooth and very sweet, A burst of sweetness washes over the palate, with traces of spun honey and  honeycomb, followed by sour apples, oaky spice and brown sugar. The fruit stays centre stage, with icing sugar sweetness, butter and wood at the edges. The spice builds, with light cinnamon joined by dark clove and dried  orange peel. Water calms the spice to reveal sweet notes of cream, sherbet and almond nuttiness, with orchard  fruit and fruit jelly.

Finish: Of medium-length, quite dry, with oak and woody spice fading to leave brown sugar and hints of anise. As the anise dies away, dried apples and spice re-appear momentarily, before at last revealing sweet oak.
