From the most northerly distillery on Speyside comes this rarely available single malt with just 3,954 individually numbered bottles worldwide. This is a fruity aperitif malt, at its best with a little water. It is gloriously fresh and fruity, with a light body and good structure. Expect fresh acidity and a light smooth texture and spiciness.
Gentle, and slightly sweeter than expected, this bottling is vatted from refill American Oak casks, each at least 12 years old. Notes of applesauce, toffee, fruit, and zesty lemon bring some light elements to undertones of fresh wood smoke and leather. This vibrant medium-bodied malt is a perfect (and smoky) introduction to the strength of special releases. A few drops of water release a delicate sweetness and notes of late resinous pine. Pungent.
