Like the touch of peat-when's that batch getting bottled?
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Citric yet soft and juicy: zabaglione, cereal (Weetabix), orange (Seville), heather blossom, smoke.
Palate: Perfumed and juicily soft with some sweetness. Dried apricot, orange peel, clove-like notes, walnut. Light peat. Dries as you hold it in the mouth. Good weight.
Finish: Sultana cake, coriander powder, hint of smoke.
Comment: Like the touch of peat-when's that batch getting bottled?
Nose: Potpourri. Spice cupboard. Flapjack. Syrup. Rosewater. Custard.
Palate: Slippery-smooth. Very sweet. Perfumy. Anis. Restrained fruitiness. Candied orange peel. Delicious sherry character. Great depth of flavour.
Finish: Toasty dryness. Long, soothing.
Comment: Quite an achievement. Like the previous 'replica' edition, this is more delicate than the robustly sherried Macallans of today.
