Nose: Acacia honey, creamy boiled sweeties (the strawberry flavour), dried apricots and white grapes. There’s a good whack of Sherry influence in here too! A whiff of coastal air and classic Highland heather, too.
Palate: Dried fruits, green apples and anise. Sweet grist and malt loaf. Pebble beaches and more heather on the mid palate.
Finish: Long. Drying with hot cinnamon sweeties and fresh bread.
Overall: Who are you calling timorous? This beastie is big, brave and an absolute blast!
