Nose: Old soft refill sherry flavours. Marzipan. Honey. Golden apricot. Sultanas. Crushed almonds. Betel leaf. Moist fennel. Lacquer. Some red tea and earthy notes. Quite intense on the nose.
Palate: Fruitiness, sherry influence but old school with lot of subtlety and roundedness. Light and delicate. Almost floats in the mouth.
Finish: Quite long. Superb. Subtle oak spice. A mild oiliness sticks around.
This is not a dram for everyone. An old school whisky that has some sherry cask influence, quite balanced and harmonious. Delicate & savoury.
