A gorgeous balance of flavor and acidity with herbal tea smokiness and cereal notes with spice, fruit and a trace of salt. Finish is long, and leaves a fresh, fruity flavor. Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - The aromatics seamlessly marry notes of sweet malt, toasted grain, tea biscuits, heather, honey and accents of sea salt, vanilla, and caramel. Perhaps the best nose in the Whisky world. The palate is rich and velvet like carrying on the malt and honey.
