Tasting note: Brilliant deep gold. Opening aromas of peppermint rock lollies followed by nuances of beeswax, dried fruits, pear and dark chocolate. Air contact finds orange spice cake to the fore. Fabulous purity. More settled and integrated than the younger bottlings, this just gets better and better with time in the glass. A delicious rush of fruity malt (dried pear, apple, vanilla) rounded off with crisp oak and orange zest at the finish. Outstanding balance. Easily the most accessible and elegant of the bunch, but if you like your whisky on the wild side, go with the cask strength or even the 12YO. This is for grown ups. Non chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol.
