A spicy nose-feel resolves as ginger sponge and lemon sponge with creamy custard (‘vanilla Victoria sponge-cake with lemon drizzle’ offered the chef among us), then reminded us all of a ‘white wash’ – clean cotton sheets on a clothes line. The taste is much sweeter than expected – runny honey, puff candy, honeycomb: it drinks well, straight. Water alters the aroma considerably: there are still some honey notes, even a trace of toffee, but now joined by ‘sweetevening perfume’ and pale floral scents (primroses?). A pleasant texture and an overall sweet taste - jelly beans as well as honeycomb. The distillery takes its name from Speyside’s highest mountain.
