Color: Intense, dark amber
Nose: Mulit-layered aromas of dried fruits, spice and buttery toffee
Taste: Exceptionally rich and smooth-a velvety, dark chocolate palate with elegant floral notes and a wisp of sweet mellow smokiness
Finish: Magnificently long, warm and memorable
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - The nose reveals a wonderfully complex blend of malt, roasted nuts, toasted wheat bread, honey, vanilla, brown baking spices, and orange peel with accents of bacon, black pepper, and oak. The palate is semisweet while perfectly balanced ideally marrying (Mar 2012)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The wonderful bouquet includes scents of bacon fat, honey, orange rind with deeper smells of black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla bean and pipe tobacco. Entry is silky smooth, semisweet, concentrated and honeyed; the midpalate offers grainy sweet, yet spicy, tangy, fruity, nutty and floral tastes. The oak element really emerges in the aftertaste, ideally completing this sensational blended Scotch. One of the finest blended Scotches in the world.
