    Colour : Shiny golden brown, an intense glow with glints of copper.

    Nose : Ripe fruit like apricots and raisins, hints of Demerara caramel, vanilla sweetness with a touch of adorable fudge caramel and wood shavings.

    Taste : Mouthfilling with an intense spiciness. Peppery. Caramelized honey and sweet hints of old sherry flavors with a rich sweetness of custard cream.

    Finish : full warm bodied, mouthcoating with enjoyable sherry and sweet vanilla spicy flavors which taste will last forever.

    • When add a drop of water nose will be opener for richer and more flavors.

    • Beware: Cask Strength, only tough guys can handle this.

    • This delicate flavor of this fine old malt has been preserved by bottling at Cask Strength at 52.9% volume alcohol without Chilfiltration. As a result of this a slight cloudiness may appear if stored at a cold temperature.

    • A hack of a Dram. One to have.
