A vibrant straw-gold colour. The nose has tempting sherry-sweet malty tones combine with delicate smokiness, releasing subtle spices. Warming the glass reveals honey, vanilla and pear drops. A delicately light flavour, with a mouth-watering combination of maltiness, smokiness and sherry sweetness. Hints of dried fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves tempt the taste buds further. A long smooth and spicy finish, with a delicious, yet delicate, lingering smokiness.
Gloriously smooth, yet with the depth and finish you would normally only expect of a much older dram. A wonderfully sherried whisky and an excellent aperitif.
