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.
