One of the highest distilleries in the land, clear snow melt water is used to create a warming malt whiskey. This is a good introduction to the delights of single malt whisky - elegant, smooth and medium-bodied, with a light, fruity palate as well as honey and vanilla notes and a whiff of heather on the finish. A gentle smoke weaves all the way through with a touch of spice. Simple greatness. Hope the distillery doesn't disappear into the snow.
