This one never ceases to amaze. Every time I decide to venture down this path I experience something new. A beautiful nose exquisitely balanced between slightly salty and deliciously sweet.
But the king in all of this is the delicate peaty smoke that holds everything together. The palate is like discovering poetry for the first time. First comes the barley shrouded in honey and then a deft smattering of almonds.
Delicate spices dance a little dance at the end as you get introduced to nutmeg that is softly brushed with caramel.
If there was a dram that I would ask for at the gallows this might be it.
