Tasting Notes by Billy A
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.
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.
Liquorice, menthol hints, damp bark, forest floor rancio, dried apple and lingering fruit cake with burnt raisins.
A great heavily sherried dram, with orchard fruit pushing past the sherry influence, without reducing it any.
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...
