This Speyside is all kinds of spicy. It has the dark amber color of a full-bodied whisky, and its scent is very strong. Its fragrance, taste, and finish are all heavy with spice. In both the scent and flavor, it can be a bit difficult to get past the pepper, but once you do, a complex series of flavors emerge to complement each other. Vanilla, raisins, and even a small hint of citrus all play off each other. The finish remains mostly spice with a little bit of raisin as well. Speyside is best enjoyed as a slow sipping Scotch.
