Tasting Notes:
Producer's Tasting Notes

Nose: An earthy aroma, figs & orange marmalade, bright notes of fresh gooseberries & ripening grapes.

Taste: Cinnamon & crushed black pepper with caramelised fruits, crystallised ginger, raisins and hints of dry oak.

Finish: Pleasingly dry with warmth that fades into a lingering sweet marmalade finish.

Billy

Nose: Cloves, apples, stewed gooseberry, pine, orange and a hint of old library mustiness.

Palate: Caramel sweetness up front, although restrained compared to the 21yo, with apple, lemon and nutty cake - cinnamon, raisins, and general cakey goodness. Some wood kicks in at the end to round off the sweetness a touch.

Finish: Sweet woody spice, sharp apples and old polished wooden panneling.

Comments: Less sweet than the 21yo but also a bit less complicated.

Tim F

Nose: Quite nutty & oaky. Some pleasant, subtle cooked apple flavours behind.

Palate: Again, noticeable sweet oak, with hazelnuts, brazilnuts. Packs a good punch considering it’s just 40%. Becomes drier and sweeter through the mid-palate

Finish: Decent length, remains quite fresh and lively. Hint of citrus and grassiness coming through.

Comment: A pleasant, enjoyable easy-drinking dram.

Customer Reviews:(1 review)
I got this from the Dubai Airport Duty Free last week. Although it is an enjoyable easy-drinking dram with oaky nose and palate, the producer did some serious injustice to this dram by bottling it at only 40% alcohol. I appreciate the fact that the producer took it easy on the sherry with this version; however, I couldn't help thinking ''what if it was bottled at 46%'' at every sip. Not worth the price.
