Spicy & sweet

Cask No. 54.69  

A bare flower in the breeze

Speyside, Spey

An unusually aromatic example of this distillery noted the panel. Aromas of lanolin, scented candles, sandalwood and fresh linen greeted us at first. Followed by fizzy snake sweeties, green apples, ink, sunflower oil and dry cider. With water we found notes of butter biscuits, vanilla cream, maple syrup and posh porridge. Also more blatant fruity notes such as kiwi, nectarine, melon and mango slices. To taste this one was full of wild flowers, wood spices, chopped fresh herbs, red lace sweets, lavender oil and a wee bite of green pepper. Water brought buttery brown toast, dried apricots, plum wine, mango chutney, white pepper, spice cake and an earthy turmeric note.
