A perfume of fruity and ripe raisin notes backed by a nutty dryness. A single malt of refinement and remarkable character, it is creamy and silky with fruit, honey, and spice notes, and has a long and gentle nutty finish.
Beverage Testing Institute 94 points - Intense and complex with scents of roasted nuts, dried red fruits, toffee, marzipan, and caramel with hints of cedar and clove filling the nose. Creamy and lush on the palate with a warming Port influence. Graceful whilst bold and generous.
Bright amber color. Complex aromas of waxy honeycomb, spicy poached pears and peaches, white potpourri, and salty buttery cashew brittle follow through on a silky, round entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with great balance and depth. Finishes with a long, lingering wave of flavor with caramel apple, anise, cinnamon raisin bread and floral talc evanescences. Impressively rich and smooth.
