A lovely, poised and elegant nose displaying plenty of fresh vanilla and grassy, citrus fruit. Full, robust and quite malty (possibly from the Spey component) with hints of sweet, dried fruit from the sherry butts. There is a little rich smokiness along with hints of toffee, banana, rhubarb and perfumed white fruit

The palate is full and very creamy. Lightly nutty and malty with apricot, white fruit and a touch of citrus and grass. A lovely depth with a building spice note (nutmeg?) on the middle along with a little of the sherried dried fruit. Long and creamy finish as the oak reappears, or maybe it never left? Dry, slightly salted and dusty tannin finish.
