Colour: Rich dark mysterious Gold
Nose: Antiqueleather, walnuts and chocolate covered raisins.
Flavour: A sweet initial taste, orange segments, chocolate. Then a lovely flavour of burnt brown sugar.
Finish: The dry finish oozes big tannins and more rich dark cocoa beans. Let the whisky breathe a little or add a drop or two of water to fully open up the dram.
