This light and delicate dram was a little lip-tingling and teeth cleaning attest to the youthfulness of this spirit, whose vigour is tempered by some complex maturation and marrying on the palate. The nose is a little underwhelming and the finish a little over-spiced but don’t let this detract from the serious quality in this whisky which at only 3 years old is a great wee drinker and perfect starter dram. 82/100
Wow, wonderfully aged sherried Speyside dram, rich in lots of lovely spices and mixed with old oak wood qualities.
Fabulous on the nose, unfortunately on the palate this lacked the intensity of last years 28 year old expression and is rather more citric and creamy.
