Notes

A muscular and typically forthright expression of this underrated Speysider. Sweet waxes, dried flowers, putty, lanolin, sunflower oil and gorse were all initially noted. Additionally, there’s some salty young Fino sherry, flint smoke, damp shed earth and chamois leather. Water revealed pinecones, air freshener, potting sheds, chopped chives, freshly turned earth, soot and ham boiled in lactic stout beers. Sinewy and charismatic stuff! The palate was immediately boisterous and lively with tea tree oil, vapour rubs, copper coins, vegetable bouillon stock, game meats, sheep wool and aged mead. Water tamed things a little, but it was still full of chamomile, vegetal notes, brown bread, autolytic yeasty notes, herbal and floral scented waxiness, barber grease, witch hazel and wine cellar must.
