A fruity apéritif malt at its best with little water: enjoyable at the start of an evening and indeed at other times too. Gloriously fresh and fruity, with a light body and good structure: the initially clean nose gives little hint of the spicy flavours of fruit that follow. Amber gold in appearance, this whisky is light and precise on the nose, soon growing in depth and complexity. Top notes of fresh, crisp, juicy fruit are backed by fragrant almond oil. :
On the palate, this is initially cool and sweet, with fresh acidity and a light smooth texture, then quickly hotter, with spicy fruit, as in a spiced fruit tea-cake.
With a little water, slimmer, still cooling and not so sweet as the perfume grows and the heat reduces in favour of a softer spiciness.
This descends into an attractive drier nuttiness, developing as dark chocolate, with hints of menthol and a grating of orange zest. Still fresh and well balanced, with a pleasing chewy texture.
