Aroma - Delicious sweet sherry bursts up you, and plateaus with undertones of fresh apples, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup and a hint of smoky heather.
Palate – Sweet and honeyed at first, with an oaky edge. Develops in the mouth with a bite of citrus and a hint of dark chocolate.
Finish – The finish is long and lingering, with warming alcohol and smooth rich sherry, and it all keeps the mouth alive for several moments after. A world class single highland malt.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 96 points - Wonderfully generous and complex offering scents of sweet Sherry, baked apples, cinnamon, and dark chocolate with accents of smoke and wild flowers. Silky and long lived on the palate with a beautiful marriage of orchard fruits, malt, and baking spices. (Mar 2012)
