Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Billy A

Nose: Heavy and sweet - stolen with extra raisins, rich PX sherry, heavy fruitcake, cinnamon and clove, black liquorice and a background of leather and balsamic sourness. There is a touch of struck match, but it adds to the experience rather than detracts.

Palate: Bitter char and stewed plums to start, with apple skin tannins, Eccles cakes insides, cloves, malt loaf, bitter black liquorice and a bit of damp wood.

Finish: Liquorice, menthol hints, damp bark, forest floor rancio, dried apple and lingering fruit cake with burnt raisins.

Comment: A great heavily sherried dram, with orchard fruit pushing past the sherry influence, without reducing it any.

Producer's Note

Full-bodied and intensely sherried with a syrupy mouth coating texture.

Treacle toffee, chocolate and maple syrup soak into the palate, carrying the tingly warmth of nutmeg and ginger spices, tangy orange marmalade and dates, leading to a long, deep finish of raisins, caramelised toffee and liquorice.

I tried this one for the first time on Cinderella Whisky Fair 2014 (8-9/3) and I was sorry to hear that they sold out. But now I found it here and just ordered two bottles! I mostly enjoy whisky from Islay but this one, this is a great Highland whisky! I do hope to go to this very distillery some time...
