  1. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Gordon & MacPhail Tasting Notes:

    Defined Christmas cake aromas in abundance for this full-bodied Single Malt. Sherry and rich brown sugar notes mingle with a delicate hint of charred oak and aged leather. The Sherry theme continues on the palate as rum and raisin flavours mix with stewed fruits, almonds and a smooth creamy note. The finish is long and sweet.
