125th Anniversary Edition
Mid gold with amber lights. The aroma is distinctly smoky (an expired autumnal bonfire), with initial medicinal base-notes (light antiseptic; sphagnum moss) giving way for a while to the more familiar Speyside sweet toffee (chewy Highland Toffee) and fruity (dried figs, also Seville orange marmalade) scents, before returning to smoke, with a hint of pine sap. With a dash of water, the latter edges towards natural artists' varnish and the smoke spreads.
A smooth texture with a predominantly sweet taste, fresh acidity and a slightly mineralic finish. Multi-layered. At reduced strength, becomes slightly more smoky, and distinctly spicy in the finish.
