    Tasting notes by the producer (George S. Grant):

     

    Gloriously dark. A big, rich sherried nose that has lost nothing of its power, having been captured in an oak cask for so long. Rich coffee aromas alongside spicy fruit.

    A truly intense flavour of fruit, sherry and other alcohols perfectly encased in a velvet bag. A very smooth, yet powerful dram. A sip explodes and covers your mouth with a beautiful, almost oily, whisky flavour. A wonderful sensation.

    A spicy finish with a finale of chocolate nuttiness.
    Bottled 2007.
