Tasting Notes:
Producer's Notes

Dark rich mahogany.

Big sherry nose, heavily polished oak, dark espresso, rich Christmas fruit cak, warm mulled wine. A lot happening in this one.

Again aniseed present, star of anise floating in a very large mug. Rich almost like a port wine. Very fruity, no dryness at all nor any real sweetness.

A very long fruity fragrant whisky.

A joy from start to the very last drop.
