One of the lesser known Speyside distilleries that was only established in 1971, so having been distilled in 1974 this cask strength release from 1997 would be one of the earliest official bottles available.
Nose: Floral honey, fragrant barley, fresh herbs, biscuity notes, toasted hazelnuts, golden syrup, oaty cereal, touches of ginger spice.
Palate: Peppery and ginger spice softening into poached pears in stock syrup, herbaceous & floral barley. Some lemon sherbet & chocolate lime notes with a drop of water.
Finish: Lemon squash, gingernut biscuits, peppery barley, pear drops, fresh garden herbs.
A fresh, herbal and peppery ginger spiced Speyside with plenty going on and much to admire here.
