Nose

This delicate Speyside, re-racked into juicy ex-Oloroso wood, is a warren of flavour. The nose offers apricot jam, figs and underripe peach, growing into spiced creamy carrot cairn.

Palate

The palate builds beautifully from fresh fruit into rich dried fruitcake. The addition of a little water and delving deeper reveals more fresh peaches and coconut, along with further wood spice.

Finish

The finish delivers a lasting medley of spices, fruit jams and hot crossed buns.
