A wet cave in a hot land
A sherry keg from a beautiful and worth visiting distillery in Keith. The barrel has given the whisky an intense mahogany and something almost viscous that suits its age. The first scent is big, fruity and earthy-muscovade sugar, old cake, terracotta pots-a damp cave in a hot country. It keeps well with water, remains full-bodied, intense and fragrant. The taste is a beautiful sequence of rich and viscous to a warm, dry finish with an aftertaste of dried ginger and molasses. A barrel of the older generation that carries its age with incomparable dignity.
