Producer's Tasting Notes
Opens warming and richly spiced on the nose, running to toffee and a caramelized, spiced orange character before a soft leather quality appears.
The palate is rich and mouth coating and the orange style returns - now and it's sweet & spicy liquor style - before running dryer.
Walnuts and chewed leather run on the long and dry finish - think of extra rich dark chocolate.

This. Is. Amazing. Wow. Supple, powerful, beautiful. Perfectly balanced. It is very reminiscent of the Glenfarclas 40, but even a little richer and more mature. You can nose it for hours, and is sweet on the palate. And to boot, you get a gorgeous rustic real wood box. I won't bother offering my tasting notes, I'll let Fred Laing's notes speak for me because they're spot on.
