The delicate whisky from this distillery in Speyside, usually very light in body and known for its flowery and honeyed touch, has received an extra layer of fruity richness thanks to a finish of twenty months in second fill sherry casks. Only slightly winey, it has developed notes of ripe peaches, apricots, red apples, and it has reached a fine balance between malty and fruity sweetness, and the drier and spicier notes from the sherry. It still maintains a gentle mouthfeel, but with an unexpected blast of pepper in the end, and even a slight quizzical whiff of farmy aromas: damp pastures, leather, horse stables. Fragrant, very easy and caressing, but with a punchy twist.
