Frisky fresh fruitiness

Speyside, Spey

A sweet, deep, warming aroma greeted the Panel like orange pure essential oil with a hint of eucalyptus as well as juicy strawberries freshly dipped into a warm melted chocolate sauce. The taste neat had a viscous liqueur-like start moving swiftly on to a boozy chocolate roulade with kirsch-soaked cherries. Water released the scent of candied oranges with a hint of fresh tobacco leaves and beeswax furniture polish, whilst on the palate now fruit scones with cherry jam and fresh purple grape juice. After thirteen years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a virgin oak hogshead with a heavy toast and a medium char.
