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.

    A good balance of Christmassy fruitcake with the deep flavours of caramel from the sherry casks.

    Decent Sherry cask flavours. The nose comes up a bit light though there is a subtle mix of barley and fruitcake. Better flavour, rich, best with a small drop of water to release the richness. Solid finish.

    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...
