    Aroma: open, a lot of wood, prunes, dark raisins, notes of dark chocolate, background, but the malt component also goes well, - freshly baked white bread, bran, vanilla; zest and something like a lemon cream pie. Not bad, without a sense of youth, although not very rich in nuances, the wine component does not dominate.

    Taste: soft enough, berry jam, dark raisins, slightly spicy, ginger-pepper, bread crust, vanilla, astringent oak.

    Finish: continues the taste, sweet-berry theme, already slightly bitter-astringent from the skin of grapes, orange liquor, grassy, wood, slightly longer than average, leaving more and more in the wood.

    Rating: 84

    Bottom line: a perfectly usable NAS, of course, not even close to the level of Abun, but there were no such expectations, the level of the basic Speyside / Highland is 10-12 years old, only having a trump card, the increased strength is up to 48%, and here it was probably just the way , with a not very interesting and not rich taste, the finish seemed dense and rich and slightly pulled its final mark for me. Sherry does not dominate, there is more care in the direction of the tree, apparently the percentage of American oak of the first filling was large.
