Cask No. 113.25

An upland whisky

Speyside, Spey

An upland whisky with an upland nose – heather moors, pine bark, berry bushes and orchard fruits; also apricot jam and cigar boxes. In the mouth – little fires of spicy sweetness are kindled, warming you with birch syrup, Liquorice Allsorts, sugar-coated fennel seeds, coltsfoot rock and spiced nuts – ginger, chilli, cardamom and cinnamon on the finish give it a youthful élan – drink this and you could elope with Elastigirl! The reduced nose is more subtle than the palate – toasted marshmallows, wood embers, spice cake and orchards. The palate balances toffee sweetness with mouth-flooding wood spice, leaving hints of eucalyptus and tobacco.
