This example of the Speyside representative in the Classic Malts is lightly oily on the nose (one suggested geranium oil), with saddle soap and leather polish, pineapple cubes, green bananas, brown apples, Cape gooseberries and a faint mintiness, like mouthwash. The taste at full strength is of thick honey and stewed apples. Remains pleasantly oily with water; fruity-fresh balanced by heavier, waxy notes. A satisfyingly thick mouthfeel and a sweet taste over all, with a faint sour note and a trace of ‘salty honey’. An excellent example of the make from this distillery.
