TASTING NOTE: Nose: a wonderfully fresh mix of grape and mint. Taste: light, youthful, playful, mouthwatering. Less plodding honey, more vibrant Demerara and juiced-up butterscotch. Finish: long, with soft almost ice-cream style vanillas with a grapey topping. A superb re-working of an always trustworthy malt. This dramatic change in shape works a treat and suits the malt perfectly. What a sensational success!! Score - 94 (Jim Murray, Whisky Bible, 2018) Price $ 74.95
