    The Hunter Laing Hepburn's Choice bottlings were a pretty bad house number until not too long ago, notorious for their mega-light color, which probably came from the use of re-refill barrels. The new series that comes with the new design is much better (which was not very difficult, however). For a sherry whisky this is also very light and the sherry notes are very restrained ...

      Glue, fruit and vegetable shop with oranges and mushrooms.

      Caramel, chocolate, hazelnuts and spices, but also wonderfully delicate notes of sherry.

      Very short, ksum complexity but at least round and elegant.
