Old gold
Nose

Mellow with a fruity beginning of canned peaches. Changes soon into notes of sherry, pencil shavings, peat and dried apricots.

Taste

Smooth and creamy. Sherry, toffee, peat, spices (curry, cardamon) and fruits (lychees, canned peaches). A nice combination, completely different from any Scotch whisky and rather tasty.

Finish

Medium long, chewy and soft with toffee in the dominating role.

Comments

Quite expensive in Europe but definitely a very good whisky.
