Colour: Light Gold.
Body: Medium bodied and well balanced.
Nose: Sandal and cedar wood fuse with the sweetness of buttercream and fresh vanilla. A little water opens-up the Highland aroma, adding dark treacle and fresh Scottish gooseberries.
Palate: A well-balanced combination of the sweetness of malt and the aridity of salt. Traces of gooseberry and a hint of lime complete this fine example of Highland Malt.Finish: A pleasantly smooth, lengthily, mouth filling aftertaste.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Caramelized peanut, confectionery and freshly cut wood fill the nose. Caramelized peaches and sea salt on the palate are rich and deep, followed by spiced wood and pale tobacco. The texture is piquant and tingling. (Apr 2014)
