Aroma: warm and fruity. Honey goes well with ripe fruits and pears. Aged calvados. Traces of mange, lemon and pineapple. Apple peel, liquorice and cedar wood. Orange and apricot jam with clover. With time we get more dried fruits, clover, ginger, cinnamon and pepper. Palate: goes well neat. Fruits - ripe apples, pears, oranges. Some hints of tropical fruits goes well with burned caramel, pepper and wood tannins. Tobacco. Really fresh and not overwhelmed, by wood. Dryness goes well with orange jam. With water I get more fruits, lemon and black tea, some banana. Finish: warm and spicy. Fruits with wood. Comments: very complex. Just give more time to it. One of the best Speysiders ever tried. Multidimensional, needs attention. I like this a lot .
The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
