Wine Enthusiast 85 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Beautiful in the glass, a bright copper hue. Complex, concentrated, deeply grainy/malty aromas rise from the glass in waves. Tastes of malt, unsweetened dry breakfast cereal, brown rice. Elegant, hearty, classic Highland malt of genuine substance.
The early aroma is a combination of malt, wood and sea breeze; the later bouquet is a deliciously harmonious, even creamy marriage of maritime atmosphere and malted barley. Palate entry is chock full of biscuity, peaty, tobacco leaf tastes; the midpalate stage is sweet. Concludes strong, firm, slightly hot, pungent and briny. The best-kept secret of Scotland's Western Highlands. 85-89 Points Wine Enthusiast
