Rich, navel-orange bittersweetness is joined by fleshy mangos and warming spice. With that is a contrasting herbal character, with green tea and mint leaves providing fresh and green notes.
Long, with fruit becoming herbal before settling on a fresh and cooling mint and menthol end.
Despite this whisky’s origins on Islay, its long ageing has allowed the smokiness of the spirit to fade and develop into something quite special. It’s run through with fruit and elegant herbal notes that demand attention: a rare dram that rewards careful examination.
