Tasting notes
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Bewitching balance of heady sherry, spice and wood. Subtle rhubarby and smoky suggestions.
Palate: Big, creamy nutty and spicy. An obvious rich sherry character prevails.
Finish: Lingering and soothing with wood spices and soft peat.
Comment: A king-pin malt which never disappoints.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Apricot-like sherry and buttery, honeyish, malt character. Lots of roundness and depth, even at this young age.
Palate: Lots of sherry, without being rich. Plenty of malt. Sweetish. Very faint hints of flowering currant and Calvados. Tightly combined flavours.
Finish: Satisfying, malty, gingery, becoming dry, with a hint of smoke.
Comment: Very satisfying.
