    Full and powerful on the nose with buttery toast and ginger jam, the age comes across well. Sweet and heavy, almost tropical, a deep fruitiness develops. Caramel and butter biscuits are also not neglected. A stroll through sunny fall foliage with a few mossy cushions and a pleasantly earthy-mineral note. The taste goes one better. Enormous fruity sweetness at the beginning, soft and round. Quince jam, canned peach, mango, persimmon. Then it gets a little hotter, the alcohol shows up with white pepper, ginger and a dash of Japanese oil. The aftertaste is oriental, spicy, incense, cinnamon, nutmeg and fine woods, although the sweet components are never completely covered. Only with a long time in the open bottle (3 months) does it reveal its full potential, freshly uncorked it is a good average.

  5. Northern&Isles scored this whisky 98 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty and dangerous to drink.
    Significant Sherry Cask influence due to the almost 4 years of post-aging, which fortunately goes far beyond a mere finish.
    This makes it very fruity with dark fruits and berries, raisins and plums.
    To finish, more Mediterranean herbs and spices with mint, maybe a little cinnamon or cardamom.
    Also more oak seasoning influence.
    Elegant, full-bodied, even a little heavy, complex.
