A profound, very dark chocolate, nose, reminiscent of Mon Chérie cherry-liqueur chocolates, a hint of wild mint and creamy coffee. A creamy mouthfeel at full strength, with the bitter chocolate theme continuing, joined by light coconut and sultanas: lively but pleasant. Water reveals its Speyside origins – acetone and warm vinyl, creamy and buttery; vanilla ice cream with desiccated coconut. A soft and gentle texture; not as sweet to taste as previously, with traces of orange bitters and later, canvas or hessian; a long finish, with dry coconut in the aftertaste. The distillery used to be connected to BenRiach Distillery, which supplied it with malt, by a railway line.
