I call this our 'two-faced' Speyside : beautifully complex and the palate delivering something you didn't quite expect from the nose. Where the smell prepares you for something very sweet, the spiciness comes as a pleasant surprise. However, after the pepper, the sweetness and a little bit of wood add to the complexity of this little known, and underestimated, but nevertheless sublime malt.

Nose : Sweet and waxy, dried grass, coconut milk, ginger and white pepper, lime zest. Oak and vanilla.

Palate : Slightly waxy mouthfeel but spicyness coming through quickly and very strong. Fruit, coconut. Long finish with hints of woodsmoke.
