Deep gold color. Lovely opening aroma is delicately spicy and brown rice-like in its grain intensity. In the mouth, it’s dusty dry, softly spicy (ginger), nutty/nougat, cocoa bean-like and succulent. Aftertaste is creamy, viscous and wonderfully nutty. (Mar 2012)

The first thing you notice is the elegant fragrance of lychee, spring blossoms, lily, rosewater, and raspberry meringue. Deeper in, grassy notes with star fruit, kumquat, and kaffir lime leaves. The flavors offer perfection in their simplicity: silky honey, soft spices, crystalized pineapple, barley sugar, lemon, and orange. On the finish, the spices chatter on and on as the sweet citrus and honey fade in and out. One to cherish. Reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Spring 2018) (Apr 2018)

Smokiness is the defining characteristic of this golden single malt. The aroma is distinctly fruity, mixing fresh apple and tropical fruit with a touch of vanilla. But from the first sip, it’s all about the smoke, with just a little bit of fruit peeking through to the spicy, slightly hot finish. (Dec 2015)
