Deliciously dark and sweet

Speyside, Spey

The nose delighted us with honey flapjacks, barley sugars, Demerara and treacle tart – pumpkin pie and blackberry bushes gave it an almost autumnal air. The palate was deliciously dark and sweet – scorched meringues, orange liqueur, black bun, treacle on a welly boot and a tannic twist of oak in the tail. The reduced nose found burnt wood and leaves, singed fruit cake, stroop waffles and old tennis racket handles. The reduced palate achieved a balance between treacle toffee and muscovado sweetness and the mighty oak, while some elusive suggestions of red wine and stock reduction added a savoury complexity.

Drinking tip: After dinner – or at least in an armchair by a log fire – first cold nights of autumn.
