Mid-umber in colour points towards refill European oak maturation. Possibly polished old oak floorboards. A moderate bead. A sharp nose-prickle, then somewhat nose-drying with Kirsch-filled liqueur chocolates and Terry’s chocolate orange behind the alcohol. Water changes it dramtically: old-fashioned barber shop, polished leather, dried fruits and ginger snaps. A soft, smooth texture (mouth-filling), and a very sweet taste throughout, with traces of molasses and soft fudge, burnt sugar and fruit-cake in the lengthy finish. Walnuts in the aftertaste. A super-clean, sherried Glenrothes.
