This expression is matured for at least 12 Years in handmade oak casks, the result is a rich, sweet dram with scents of spices and honeyed plump fruits. Syrupy, with lots of vanilla and fudge and just a whisper of smoke on the finish.
700ml at 40% alc./vol.
Creamy as well as fruity with just a hint of smoke. The fudge, sherry, dried fruit, and coffee notes make for a well-rounded experience.
Sweetness and malt on the palate with notes of vanilla, almonds, cream, and some spicy oak. An ever so slight peatiness is there to spice things up.
The long finish has notes of citrus zest, apricots, ginger, malt, and a dash of chocolate. A pleasant nuttiness lingers.
