Nosing: Malt Tropical Fruit Fruit Vanilla Sweet Honey Herbs Mint Pineapple Floral

Taste: Malt Honey Sweet Pineapple Fruit Dried Fruit Mint Oak Tropical Fruit

Finish: Oak Malt Sherry Herbs Fruit Pineapple Dark Chocolate Coffee

Comment: Very complex and is a very aromatic speyside malt. The finishing is not long enough to savour, but is not too short. The balancing is a bit off to floral and tropical fruits, if it wasn't because of the maltiness I would have thought it was not a whisky but a brandy instead. Overall a very good speyside if you have enough time to appreciate the complexity of this malt. Just a bit off balanced for me.

Nosing: Sweet Vanilla Malt Fruit

Taste: Fruit Malt Sweet Spices

Finish: Malt Spices Sweet Peat Smoke

Comment: This whisky was quite a big surprise for me. Considering other Speyside whisky's this was very well balanced and complex as well. The nosing is sweetness with vanilla and with some fruityness. The taste is very balanced with maltiness spiciness and a bit fruit. In the finish definitely some "kind of smoke" showing up. It's a must from my side!
