This malt is part of the "Heritage Selection" collection.
The colour is gold with amber glints, the nose is light and marked by the wood and sherry.
The palate is full and dry, but rather pleasant.
The finish, on fruit, is of an average length. A classical single malt, where the mouth dominates the nose.

Personal Comment
One of the most beautifully distilleries of Scotland, settled in the very heart of Speyside. The single malt represents about 2% of the marketed spirits, and I did not expect such a great malt.
This whisky, not too expensive, is really excellent. A real must. Matured in sherry casks (I did not really detect sherry hints), the sweet and remarkably balanced whisky offers very pleasant honey hints, and the long finish prolongs the pleasure for minutes.
84/100
A rather sweet nose with some citrus hints, followed by a nice palate, dominated by a certain complex sweetness, allying honey with green apples and malt to red berries. A finish of average length, and strangely salted, a surprise after all that sweetness.

Personal Comment

A very clear nose, very fresh: cut grass, and a slight smell of plum. A very nice palate, extremely fresh, fruity, with a mix of exotic fruits, pineapple, banana, and a sweet malty background. Very few bitterness for a whisky having spent 40 years in a wooden cask. The finish is rather long, and parodoxically the expected woody hints expected in the mouth appear now, even if they remain discrete. A long development on moka or coffee notes.
88/100
What a nice nose. Very nice combination of smells perfectly balanced. Flowers, brewer's yeast, malt and a touch of grapefruit are just some of them. Spicy hints also.
The mouth is slightly down the nose, and very soon some woody/chocolate hints appear. From the first dry impression, the palate gets quickly oily. Very balanced and nuanced whole.
The finish is long and pleasant, with no hint of alcohol. Just malty happiness with discrete hints of walnut. The finish is paradoxically richer than the mouth was.
88/100
This great nose is just a bucket of flowers in the spring. Really marvellous, an explosion of smells mixing very expressive floral notes of spicy peppery ones. Hay on the background, a nice freshness and lots of complexity.
In the palate, the freshness remains as a dominant characteristic, just like the complexity. Some hints of cut grass and unripe fruit. A touch of cashew nut as well. An amazing mix of fruity freshness and slightly bitter notes.
Nice and lingering finish, marked by the smooth bitterness of the nuts.
Superb whisky.

The nose is nicely marked by vanilla and hints of humid wood. Very complex, it develops on vegetal mentholated notes, with hints of green apple. The mouth is pleasant and marked by woody bitterness, before developing on chocolate hints ant then on nice fruity notes. Despite the high percentage of alcohol, this whisky remains extraordinary smooth in the palate. The finish is long and remarkably smooth to, if one considers the alcohol percentage. This bottling is a complete success..
88/100
The nose is both peppery and sweet. A kind of spicy fruit cake. Very nice impression, rather complex and well build with a very interesting balance between the malty smoothness and very nice fruity notes. All this besides the clear sherry notes.
In the palate, the first impression is some citrus acidity. Then both woody and clearly acid hints follow, a real firework of tastes, very interesting contrasts. A delightful impression, a perfect marriage of fruits, wood and freshness.
The finish is of the same quality as the nose and the mouth. Nice length, perfect balance between notes which first seemed to be really contradictory.

The nose is clearly marked by sherry with very pleasant and rather complex hints of malt and toffee. In the palate a wonderful impression of very fine wood, a nice complexity swinging between nutty hints and a fresher slight acidity. The finish is amazingly long. Very nice, both smooth and full of character, a light woody bitterness and some memories of sherry. This bottle is remarkable for its balance and complexity.

A nice sherryish nose followed by rich fruity hints. Plum, touches of coffee and sherry...
The palate is a delicious mix of sherry, slightly woody notes with discrete metallic hints, in alcohol marinated plum.
The finish is sherry again, but also fruit. It is unfortunately a bit too short.

This nose is simply great. An impressive smoothness with the right proportion of nutty bitterness and just enough character to be really very very pleasant. Some nice touches of sherry and pudding hints.
In the palate, a very nice contrast between a light acidity and a woody bitterness (much more present than at the nosing) give this whisky an impressive complexity. It remains very smooth.
The finish is lingering and a very fine and pleasant woody hint is still present. Amazing how this woody character is not over dominant after so many years.

Color: Brown
An intense nose marked by sherry with all the pleasure offered by these wonderful notes that blend harmoniously with notes of chocolate, plum jam, hazelnut and this discreet touch of citrus acidity.
The mouth is phenomenal. The complexity of this whiskey is revealed immediately. A true liquid happiness . Smooth and full of nuances, the papillae spend a lot of tastes in review, a pleasant blend of bitter nice fruity notes and chocolate. All in perfect harmony.
Final of a very good length. The complexity of the mouth is found here as well. Just happiness.

Very nice nose subtly balanced between floral fragrances and the smoothness of yellow fruits. Nice malty hints. Superb balance.
The mouth is pleasantly balanced between peach smoothness and walnut hints. Really extremely pleasant sensation and nice complexity.
The finish is long and the contrast between smoothness and bitterness prolong the pleasure for long minutes.

The nose detects a high level of alcohol and despite some tingling, very nice fruity notes give this whisky an exceptional freshness. Pepper and spices complete the nose impressions.
In the palate, some pleasant fruity acidity and here, no hinder of the high alcohol percentage, We would have liked some more fantasy, specially after the promising nose. However, this remains quite a good whisky.
The finish is fresh and not too long, with some fruity hints.

Color: Mahogany
The nose is aggressive, even after several minutes of aeration. Solvent odors seem to dominate rather complex fruity notes. Sherry is undoubtedly present. The whole is extremely pleasant. Too bad that this nose continues to be pungent, preventing underlying smells be fully revealed.
Alcohol is present in the mouth too, but the complexity is more developed than it was at the nosing. Some woody notes, but not too much, just enough to be nice and not intrusive. A big blast of sherry, chocolate, a remarkable presence in the mouth. The mouth is relatively dry and yet extremely enjoyable.
The finish is long and warm. It keeps the memory of the drought in the mouth, but this is largely compensated by the aromas of sherry and which are overwhelmingly present with you for long minutes.
