Like the photograph this whisky complements there is a range of rich, large characters on display with a youthful zest at the core. Big flavours dominate, rich dried fruits, polished oak, orange and hardness of maturity, yet these are offset by soft yet youthful citrus notes, much like the young piper surrounded by his much bigger, more experienced and older companions.
