Tasting Notes

Nose
G&M:  It’s got all the classic Speyside characteristics of rum and raisin, beeswax polish with an underlying rich nuttiness to it.
Taste
G&M:  A soft opening with a slight delay until it surprises you with a flourish of bitter orange, ripe banana, clove oil, and charred oak ash.  With water - This would be one to experiment with hesitantly, drop by drop. It draws out the fruits and a fresh, garden peapod scent emerges
