BITTER-SWEET AS LOST LOVE

At 14 years old, this 60.3% Speysider came from a 1st fill barrel.

Flavour profile:  Sweet, fruity & mellow

Outturn:  199 bottles

Panel's tasting note:  "The nose had unstinted salivating sweetness (toffee, marshmallows, nougat, maple syrup on ice-cream, Crunchie bars, sugary espresso dregs) plus a mesmerizing melange of exotic fruits, some pine and old-fashioned perfumes. The palate was really juicy and lively – slightly bitter but attractive fruits dancing jigs on our willing tongues (kumquat, preserved lemon, Caribbean punch, sherbet lemons) – we also got balsamic glaze, cinnamon stick, vanilla and juicy oak. The reduced nose seemed fruitier, fresher and mouth-watering, with pineapple, apricot, melon, tutti-frutti and lemon tart. The reduced palate was as bitter-sweet as Tennyson’s lost love – lemon drizzle cake, bitter lemon and pickled ginger."

Drinking tip:  "It's quite lively - something to put you in the mood for dancing, fun fairs or sky-diving"
