Official SMWS Panel Tasting Notes:
The nose neat had plenty of goodness; Battenberg cake, ripe mangoes, satsumas and peaches, floral orange blossom honey and vanilla poached quince. The taste did not have to hide either; a wonderful viscosity and mellowness, golden syrup infused with vanilla seeds as well as deliciously soft and creamy ‘Cappuccino-Windbeutel’ (cream puffs).
A drop of water and juicy pears and nectarines appeared next to a lit Tonka bean scented beeswax candle on a late warm summery evening. The texture again fantastic, like clotted cream, scones, plum jam with a hint of a zingy Jamaica ginger cake and in the long finish, a hint of sweet tobacco. Bottled for the 2021 Speyside Whisky Festival.
