    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 281 bottles from cask 846

    This bourbon hogshead was originally filled for the local Fassfern Estate near Fort William, and a very good choice of cask it was - already a deep gold colour after only 11 years maturation. The nose is sweet and inviting: vanilla pods, almost home-made ice-cream, then super-tempting Banoffee Pie, and toasted oats in more toffee sauce. The flavour at full strength is rich and nutty, with a long, sweet finish. With the addition of a little water, a lovely citrus note with fresh scents of jasmine and raisins following behind. The texture is mouth-coating and rich, and the finish full of bitter almonds and icing sugar.
