    Outstanding whisky, the age hasn't dented any of the delightful fruitiness and marzipan creaminess in the palate. Nose is light and fruity with a hint of meringue, reminiscent of a light sherry (the age is also present here), and a slight, medium length herbal finish with almost no alcohol burn at all.

    Delicious fruity whisky...
    Scent of apricot, almond blossom and a nice long finish with a hint of vanilla.
    Recommended!

  12. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: Pour it into your glass and let the magic unfold like seeing a butterfly opening its wings – a shimmering beauty. Lovely expressive fruit aromas combined with frankincense, French polished tables and in the background the alluring scent of pure vanilla extract. On the palate like a metaphor for a place of happiness, pleasure and delight. Hard to describe but we tried; incense smoked vanilla cream, mango and lychees with the hedonistic sweetness of Cotton candy grapes in the finish. A drop of water if you wish and the story continued with vanilla, fruity and juicy as we imagined sitting in a rocking chair and dreaming of times gone by.
